Bird and Beast showcases the work of artist-illustrator, Laura McKendry.

Laura McKendry’s drawings of dogs capture the moments that define our relationship with our canine companions.  Combining bold expressive brushstrokes and decisively drawn lines, her drawings are spontaneous and soulful whilst avoiding the usual sentimentality associated with animal portraiture.  There is a playful honesty to her work, employing techniques that steer away from traditional applications of charcoal and watercolour to create images filled with both energy and affection.

Laura lives and works in North London, alongside her scruffy black pup, Bobby. More of her work can be found at lauramckendry.com.
