Welcome to my little corner of the internet. I'm Laura Trinder, a freelance illustrator working mainly on children's books, graphic novels, private commissions, and creating images to promote books and reading.

I create my illustrations in a cosy home studio nestled in the English countryside, which I share with my husband (fellow artist Christian Wildgoose).

I love BOOKS, drawing, trees, dogs, nature, interesting buildings, sourdough toast and all things fairy tale.

I'm currently working on books and comics for Chicken House, DC, and Improper Books.

Improper Books is an indie publishing studio I co-founded with Benjamin Read and Chris Wildgoose. There is a separate page about Improper here on my site.

I worked in a bookshop for 11 years and I'm still a bookseller at heart.

Please feel free to have a look around and get in touch if you have any questions :)
