Hello! My name is Lauren Gorbould and I'm an illustrator and artist based in Norwich, UK. I am currently in my third and final year of studying BA Illustration at Norwich University of the Arts, which has been a crucial part in my art career and has taught me so much.
I have always been the 'arty kid', and I found a way to be creative in every part of my childhood. At the age of 15, I created my own business drawing realistic pet portraits. It was so fun, but didn't allow me to have any creativity. I enrolled in at NUA to study BA illustration, which is where my creativity and style totally blossomed. I continued drawing peoples pets until my last year of uni where I decided to have a break and focus on graduating. 
My work is playful, colourful and fun, mainly working in mixed media in a sketchbook or digital on my iPad. Im currently writing and creating my first children's picture book, which I hope to release at the end of 2022. So exciting!
