Laura Shallcrass is an artist and commercial illustrator based in Queenstown, New
Zealand. Laura was born in Wellington where she trained as an illustrator and
graphic designer, before traveling the world and eventually settling in Queenstown. Flora and fauna feature heavily in her work, alongside gemstones and minerals hovering, dreamlike, against scenes ethereal and yet familiar. Laura paints in oils and gouache and draws in ink and graphite, creating sparse and yet detail focused works of infinite depth and stillness.
