CUSTOM LOGO DESIGNSWho are you?
Hi I'm Laura Kay, the Illustrator, blogger and shop owner of Diary Sketches. I'm originally from the US and I currently reside in Jerusalem (what started off as a one year adventure…;)) I am also a wife and a stay at home mom. When I'm not drawing I love to read cookbooks and try out new recipes… I also need a coffee in the morning! (see illustration below) And I love to walk outside!
I have been drawing since I could pick up a crayon and I'm still going strong since, till the weeee hours of the morning :) Art brings me joy!! I just love to draw and paint and create…It's my true passion, my oxygen!!
What is special about your illustrations?
I think what makes my illustrations special is the mix between high fashion and quirkiness, professionalism and cute…its that little unexpected something, like a formal wedding invite with funky pink cheeks. I work mostly with ink and watercolour and digital painting with my Wacom tablet. I'll occasionally dabble with oils, acrylics and pastels.
What inspires you?
I am inspired by fashion and the pretty things around me, I always check out quirky Pinterest boards, Etsy shops, fashion blogs & magazines. I also often go to the city center to get inspired by the mix of people, cultures and styles. Aside from that I often check out local galleries when I pass them on the street.
