Laura J. Holman, California Member Since February 2010 Artist Statement I can't remember ever not drawing, it was just something I always knew how to do. My passion for fashion led me to the fashion industry as an illustrator and later art director at ad agencies where I won my awards. My love for children's books is now leading me down the path to gear my portfolio in that direction. I find people and animals the most enjoyable to paint and illustrate. I'm a member of SCBWI, JacketFlap, and Book Marketing Network. My inspiration comes on a daily basis, and creation comes at the strangest hours.
