About Laura Middleton Art

Hello! I’m Laura and I’m a big bird nerd.

I love the challenge of representing my favourite creatures on paper, while trying to capture a little something of their personalities. Working out how to simplify a bird's complex patterns for a painting can be a tricky puzzle to solve - especially as every individual of a species is slightly different! But it’s also the best way to fully absorb and memorise a bird’s markings. Once I’ve painted a bird, I feel like I know it so much better!

It’s important to me that my illustrations are as accurate as possible, and I try to appeal to experts as well as casual bird admirers. Each design is carefully researched to make sure a bird’s pose matches it’s real-life movements, and it's sitting in just the right tree.

I paint birds and other wildlife with a mixture of watercolour, gouache and pencil. Although I’m heavily inspired by the graceful poses and flowing compositions of traditional natural history illustration, I like to add a contemporary twist to my work. I try to resist trends and hopefully keep things timeless!

I run my shop from my home studio in beautiful Bradford on Avon, just outside Bath. We are lucky to be surrounded by lush countryside, with kingfishers zooming by along the river Avon. Here I design, paint and package everything you see in my shop - from greetings cards and prints, to one of a kind oil paintings.

I’ve always loved sharing and selling my creations, and have had an Etsy shop since I was a gawky teenager making odd felt Christmas decorations back in 2010. I’m so glad you’ve stopped by to have a look now things are a bit more polished! I hope you find something you like.
