Laura Barrett's Profile
Hello, I'm a freelance illustrator from South East London specialising in creating intricate and decorative silhouette illustrations.
With an emphasis on storytelling and an attention to detail, my work is inspired by the darker side of folk and fairy tales, as well as traditional Scherenschnitte (paper cutting). I like to exploresthese themes using silhouettes, created by drawing with a graphics tablet straight in to Adobe Illustrator. I'm happiest when working in striking black and white.
Since graduating from University of the Arts London in 2007 I've been working with a variety of international clients, particularly within the fields of publishing, packaging and stationery. My clients include Ted Baker, The Guardian, Yardley London and Brighton Festival and I'm the illustrator of Taschen's Fairy Tales of the Brothers…
