Laura Watson

As a freelance illustrator working in Toronto, Laura Watson has been creating whimsical illustrations for children’s books, educational materials, magazines and various retail applications since graduating from Sheridan College’s Interpretive Illustration program, in Oakville, Ontario, in 1995. Born and raised in the heart of the lovely Kawartha Lakes region in Peterborough, Ontario, Laura also studied Fine Art at York University and graduated with an Honours degree in Visual Arts. In the past few years, Laura has enjoyed illustrating several trade children’s books (most recently, My Evil Big Brother Packed My Lunch from Chronicle Kids) and countless school publications for subjects as diverse as poetry and math. Laura lives in the leafy Riverdale neighbourhood of Toronto with her husband, 11-year-old daughter, and 3-year-old redbone coonhound / lab rescue dog, and works in a converted backyard garage studio surrounded by a slightly unkempt garden. She enjoys the outdoors, runs often and spends as much time as possible at the beach hunting for sea glass.
