Drawing is my most favourite of things...

I’m a Manchester born illustrator residing and working in Liverpool, I graduated in 2008 and have worked as a freelance illustrator since 2009. As well as creating artwork for my own personal portfolio and exhibitions I have also worked on a variety of professional briefs including illustrations for a children’s book. The idea to begin developing my own range of illustrated products grew after making some hand-painted Christmas mugs for family members. It allowed me to realise and visualise how my images could work across a range of gift and home ware products.

Themes that are most prevalent in my work are without a doubt nature, flowers, animals, creating weird and wonderful characters and of course a bit of Wes Anderson fan art thrown in for good measure. My work is predominantly hand drawn using a variety of media but I particularly love painting with water colours, and using fancy felt tips for some added details. In a time of such advanced technology, it is important to me that my work continues to be executed using traditional methods. More recently I have started to explore the medium of screen printing to further experiment with colour, pattern and texture.

Above all else I simply love drawing, even when I don't feel that creative, as it's often at these times that my best ideas come. I find that I’m always learning and my work is constantly evolving and for me that is what I find the most exciting. There will always be new ideas that I’m chasing and itching to get down on paper.

All of my products are made by hand, and where possible printed and produced by myself. Therefore all products are high quality and made with loving care. I am available for private commissions, menu design, logos, and bespoke wedding stationary and invitations. I am also available for exhibitions and collaborative projects.


Become enchanted by the world of Laura-Kate Draws and find magic in the mundane.

Frequently asked questions
Commissions

I am available for commissions and am always open to hearing your ideas for bespoke pieces, but please do be aware that my work is incredibly detailed and larger completed by hand using traditional methods such as painting, illustrating and print making and therefore takes a considerable amount of time to complete. Therefore the price point for commissions will be reflective of this time and artistic dedication as well as material costs and over heads, so please don’t expect to be quoted the same price as my completed prints that you will find on my shop.

I saw your product at an art market but can't see it on your shop?

I am always working on new designs (I wish I had more time to work on all the ideas whirling around in my brain), and try to upload new items to my shop as soon as they are completed. However if you have seen a product at one of my many in person art market events that you can’t see on my shop please get in touch with my either via message on Etsy or directly on enquiries@laura-katedraws.com.

Postage

All of my products will be sent out to your securely and safely packaged, I do my upmost to avoid your purchases becoming damaged in transit. I send all items out via 1st Class Royal Mail to the UK and Standard Airmail overseas. Please note this is an untracked service, if you require your items to be sent via a tracked service, please choose an “upgraded shipping option” in the drop down postage option box when placing your order.

Can you offer me a discount?

I don’t offer discounts on request; any current offers are displayed in my shop. My prices are all carefully calculated to allow for materials, postage, taxes, overheads, commission and the time it takes me to create each item . As such, prices are not negotiable.

If you are a returning customer, you will have been emailed a "returning customer" discount code after placing your original order. I periodically run promotionally sales and flash sales occasionally throughout the year.
