Laura Casella

Originally obtaining an Illustration B.A. in my home city of Rome in 1994. I relocated soon after to London for further training to become a Graphic and Web Designer. After several design and marketing roles, I attended a year-long animation course to master narrative through moving images. This experience gave me the confidence to return again to my original passion for illustration.
In 2017 I took a Masters in Children’s Book Illustration, fully developing characters and stories and expanding into exciting new methods and techniques. Right now my preferred medium is gouache with colouring pencil, but I also love to experiment in printmaking and collage. My creative ethos is to never stop exploring ways of building new visuals to make my stories as engaging as possible.
