about

Laura McKendry is an illustrator and artist based in North London, UK.

She works mainly with watercolour, ink and coloured pencil, but also experiments with unusual tools and materials (bubble wrap, emulsion paint, sticks, teabags, squashed blackberries, paintbrush handles…). She stands to draw and paint on the floor, injecting an energy and playfulness to her drawings.

Laura teaches drawing and illustration short courses at Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London and online with Domestika. She runs drawing and painting retreats throughout the year. Her workshops are accessible, with a focus on playful ways of unlocking creativity combined with technical skills and directive guidance.
