Laura is a children's book illustrator from Uruguay, all the way in South America. She's been a graphic designer for a number of years and started her illustration journey in 2017, a year after becoming a mom. Her favorite tools to illustrate with are watercolors, colored pencils and collage because they instill life into the characters and their universe. She's currently making illustrated books for kids and bilingual board books with diverse publishing houses like Jesse Byrd Creative and Magical Corazón Books. She's part of the Spanish-speaking watercolor colective "Acuarelistas Unidas", aiming to bring forward this form of art in Latin America through classes and workshops.
