Laura Winstone is an award winning illustrator and artist specialising in collage art, illustration and ceramics. Based in Norfolk she creates detailed and colourful ceramics and illustrations.
Laura has been working in paper collage for around 15 years. After studying Textile Design at
Loughborough University, she went on to do an Art PGCE and became a teacher. A few years later she completed a MA in children’s book illustration and has since won various awards and is now working on her second book.
Laura’s Ceramic practice is a more recent development. She fell in love with clay in high school and has happily returned to it. Her vases are the perfect vessel for her designs, marrying the decorative and functional.
Finding inspiration in objects which show the origin and maker in the piece, from beautiful Japanese embroidered Kimonos to the delicate nature of Delftware ceramics or funny Staffordshire pottery, Laura’s work is a celebration of colour, shape and pattern.
