I create artwork that’s intended to inspire, whether making you smile, or making you think. My style of drawing is playful; my light quick lines are created with pen and ink – which are my weapons of choice. Depending on the project, or the feel of a piece, artwork is painted or coloured digitally. Simply scroll down to view my portfolio.
If you like what you see and want something made for yourself, you can work with me too.

I’ll confess, I’m not the most technically minded person. So making a website from scratch on a certain software that is much more expansive than my limited knowledge is a bit daunting. However, to combat this I find the challenge appeals to a stubborn streak of mine when faced with problems. With some help from the mind behind Gui Creative to point me in the right direction, I crafted my new website: www.lauraelliottillustration.co.uk
You’ll be able to clearly see my portfolio of work which ranges from children’s narrative to editorial to promotional, adapting my style to both watercolour and digital methods. You can view a choice selection of my sketchbook imagery that supports my way of working and hones my skills.
Not only do you get to see my work but you get to play with robins too! I like how the nature of the robin images changing reflect bird like movements. It seemed to come together well.
My blog will continue to be updated with news, new work and my various creative thoughts and my website will be a platform for viewing my best work. I hope you enjoy them both!
