Lauren Young Illustration
Meet the Maker - Lauren Young
What do you do?
Hi I’m Lauren and I’m an illustrator, I Primarily work with water colours, my work is influenced by
the County Durham and Northumberland countryside, my illustrations are vibrant, full of colour and detail.
As a lover of the stunning British countryside I know how important it is for us to protect our
Environment, because of this all of my products come from British suppliers, I stay away from
single use plastic, and use recycled packaging.
How did you get started?
I started off whilst I was at University doing small bits of commissioned illustration work and after graduating I didn't stop and expanded what I was doing.
Is this your full time job?
Where do you create?
I create from my studio in Consett.
Tea or coffee?
Tea on a morning, but you can’t beat a good iced coffee
Where is your favourite local place?
Middleton In Teesdale
