"Laura is an illustrator, graphic designer and graphic recorder. With a background in art and conceptual design, she is passionate about organizing information so that it is comprehensible to the viewer. Some examples of this work include infographics, powerpoint presentations, animations and graphic illustrations to speak about concepts in a visual language everyone can understand."
I was raised in the small-ish town of Brantford Ontario, where I spent the majority of my childhood. Growing up I always enjoyed drawing, but it wasn't a big part of my life until I discovered video games. When I received my first gaming system, I spent hours with a still image on the TV trying to draw the characters just right. Of course TV's back then would burn from a still-image on the screen for too long (sorry mom and dad!) All through high school I loved creating characters and stories to go along with them. Which lead me to college, where I knew I needed to be in a program that fulfilled my love of storytelling. I applied for Sheridan College's Bachelor of Illustration program and I got in right out of high school. It still is to this day one of my greatest achievements!
The program was amazing, and I have applied many aspects of my learning throughout my career. I have done a variety of jobs in my past such as print, digital marketing, publishing and research on top of design. I believe this diversity in my background helps bring something new and exciting to every project I take on.
While my educational background is focused on illustration, I do have a strong passion for graphic design and graphic recording. While I am new to the graphic recording field, I absolutely love it and I cannot wait to learn and grow by doing. What is graphic recording? Keep scrolling to find out!
I now reside in Petawawa with my husband, and I consider myself pretty lucky. I'm so fortunate to be able to do what I love, help other's grow their passions and reach their goals. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story!
