Botanical art and illustration Inspired by British wildflowers and quintessentially English nature.
Laura often illustrated plants found in her garden as a child, she’s always been enchanted by nature and the landscape in her Suffolk home. After completing her BA Hons degree in Fine Art Laura went onto a career as an Art Consultant, selling artwork around the world. However, 10 years later she decided to pick up the paint brush again to document her natural surroundings.
Inspired by British wildflowers, grasses and quintessentially English nature her vibrant artwork documents the wild plants that are fast decreasing across the UK – Did you know that 97% of our British meadows have disappeared since the 1930’s? Illustrating wildflowers often found on the roadside Laura’s gouche and watercolour artwork finds beauty in unexpected places. She creates miniature, natural worlds you can get lost in, just like Alice in Wonderland.
Laura can often be found exploring the Norfolk Broads on her boat with her travel easel, pooch and sketchbook. She regularly walks along the Suffolk coastline… You can follow her inspirations and studio life via Instagram: @lauraandrewsstudio
