Laura Wood is a freelance illustrator currently living in Melbourne.
She was born and raised in Italy and at the age of 24, after completing a Bachelor of Cinema and Multimedia, she decided to follow the little voice in her head and move to Australia. It is amongst eucalyptus trees that she started dedicating all her energy to illustration.

Her illustrations are colorful and quirky. She likes to combine both digital and traditional dry media to create childlike pictures with a sunny style and a folksy feeling.
Laura’s illustrations give life to a fantasy world that is both welcoming and mysterious. She is fascinated by illustrations able to tell a story; an element which she uses within her own work.

Laura has a passion for catlike animals, flat shoes and good food.
When she is not busy making pictures, she drinks tea, watches movies and spends time with the people she loves. She also tries to be nice and friendly everyday.
