About

Hello, I'm a freelance Illustrator currently based in Bristol, UK.

If you have any queries or possible commissions regarding literary work please contact my agent Alice Williams from David Higham Associates.

For illustration work based in Switzerland and Germany and not associated with literary work, please contact Studio Pony.
 
For all other queries regarding illustration commissions, questions or collaborations please email me at lara.t.hawthorne@gmail.com.

I sell a variety of prints, notebooks and cards on my online shop. 

Through Betty & Dupree my prints are distributed to shops throughout the UK and internationally.

My work is also sold through a Peruvian online children's art gallery Gabinete de Maravillas
