Inner North Places we Love - Laura Holley
Laura Holey is a prolific and talented illustrator who has made it her job to document the pubs, bars, watering holes and restaurants of the Inner Melbourne suburbs. Holley does this with a keen eye for detail and with an abundance of good humour. These are places she loves to visit and hang out as do her audience. These are places that make community, there places where couples have met, had a first date, and sometimes got engaged or hitched!
Laura Holley – Lawz Drawz – is on a mission to draw all of the best bits of her city. A lover of great food and drinks, for which Melbourne is known, she feels there is no better subject for her artwork than the unique buildings that house her favourite pubs, cafes and restaurants. She has set herself the task of illustrating a handful of significant places for every inner-city suburb.
Laura has always loved drawing and creating. When she began illustrating her friends’ favourite pubs as birthday gifts, she was so flattered by their reactions and decided to take it to the next level. She dabbled in a few mediums including ink, watercolour and digital, and now works exclusively in Procreate on an iPad.
All works are archivally printed onto artist quality cotton rag paper, signed by the artist and framed.
