Artist: Laura Marr
Our featured artist this month is Laura Marr! Laura is the author of Inky Richmond, an award-winning upscale gift/activity book that highlights some of the most beloved sites and landmarks in Richmond, Virginia. Marr has illustrated for magazines, children’s books, greeting card companies, and for clients such as McGraw-Hill, The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts, The Corcoran Gallery of Art, Richmond Magazine, and more. Marr holds a BFA in Graphic Design & Illustration from Baylor University, with additional study at the Santa Reparata School of Art in Florence, Italy.
As an artist and illustrator my work is undulating, intricate, and thoughtful. My primary style combines sinuous, expressive ink drawing with washes of color. My work is rooted in optimism and movement, with a desire to find beauty in ordinary places.
