Laurie Stansfield (Illustrator)

Laurie Stansfield grew up in the beautiful city of Oxford before moving west to study illustration at the University of the West of England. She has worked as a freelance illustrator since graduating, and occasionally lectures back at UWE Bristol where she studied.

Laurie creates her art digitally using loose line, lots of texture and a limited but punchy colour palette. She is inspired by nature and finds she has her best ideas when she's outside in the fresh air. She lives with her husband in Bristol, and works out of an inspiring studio space which she shares with a handful of up-beat creatives.
