Laura Wood

My name is Laura Wood and I'm an independent illustrator living between Bristol, Melbourne and Milan and proudly represented by the lovely people at Good Illustration Agency.

I grew up in the north of Italy devouring books, drawing on the kitchen walls of my parents house and imagining animals could talk to me and become my friends.

Now I spend my days creating visual worlds and truly enjoying every minute of it.

In particular, my favourite part of the illustration process is the moment I stumble upon things in a text that weren't there before (or maybe they were just hiding between a comma and an exclamation mark).
Or the minute I run into the right colour palette for a story. That's when the world begins to really come to life.
Oh, and did I mention bumping into funny (and furry!) characters in amusing stories?
That really makes my day.
