Lauren Mulhearn

Bristol based illustrator/designer.

Ultimately I am an illustrator, however my approach to producing artwork falls under many different categories. For example, I routinely enhance my projects with processes like film, costume, 3D models, photography and graphic design etc.

Visually, my work appears colourful, childlike and humorous. However, the context of my work frequently explores more serious angles to provide meaning and purpose.

The main inspiration for my work comes from food, music, satire, and the people around me!
