Laura is a wildlife artist based in Newcastle Upon Tyne. Taking inspiration nature, Laura creates highly detailed portraits primarily using coloured pencil.

"I did my first pet portrait while I was living in the south of Spain on my gap year. I fell completely in love with the yard dog at the stables I was working at, so I'd spend my evenings working on this portrait of him. A few years passed and drawing took a back seat until I found myself with months of free time in my university summer break. I started experimenting with pencil work again, working on references photos from my images on my phone and it developed from there." Read More

I am thrilled to have recently partnered with Helping Rhinos, donating 10% of all sales from my Rhino artwork to help with their fantastic efforts in conservation. Helping Rhinos is an international charity forging innovative conservation, community and education initiatives to ensure the long-term survival of the rhino and other endangered wildlife in their natural habitat. Rhino have been on the planet for 50 million years, and have evolved into their current form throughout that time as the environment and their habitat has changed. They now face their biggest challenge as man restricts their natural habitat and kills them for their horn. If you would like to find out more information about the amazing work they do, you can visit their website.
