Laura Dawes

2017 Art Trail

My work is a mixture of digital paintings, ink drawings and watercolours. Since adopting my rescue dog Holly last year, I have become fascinated with drawing and painting her, and any other dogs who wish to “sit” for me. As well as dogs themselves, I love to capture the spirit of the beautiful places we walk our dogs in.

I became a freelance artist this year, after 11 years working as a 3D videogame artist, first in Oxford at Rebellion, then in Otley at Just Add Water. I’m very grateful that I had the opportunity to move to Ilkley, I love living here.

I’ve been enjoying working hard on my drawing and painting skills recently, and feel I’m now ready to exhibit some of my work for the first time. I will enjoy showing my digital painting process to visitors on the art trail.
