Laurie Stansfield feels clever and useful when she is drawing.

She drew when she was little and now it is her profession.

Laurie lives in Bristol, UK, and creates her work from a shared studio space,

surrounded by people doing all sorts of fantastic things.


In 2010, Laurie’s self written picture book was awarded ‘highly commended’ in the Macmillan Prize.

That same year, she graduated with a first class degree in BA (hons) Illustration

 from University of the West of England (UWE).


Laurie creates digital illustrations for both screen and print format.

But she always sketches in pencil when planning an image.

She cares about shape and line.

Working quickly, she aims to create images that are confident and bright.

Laurie has a particular skill for drawing characters with

 expression in their body language and it can seem like they’re alive.
