Laura Alvarez, Artist
I’m an illustrator, designer, visual artist, community activist and educator. Ecology, tradition, recycling, change, and self-improvement, are elements present in my work. I’m obsessed with calligraphy and making words a tangible image in the eye of the viewer. I see words as a thesis to an emotion or idea and it is a necessity for me to transmit that message. I create parallel, imaginary worlds and fantastic beings ‑ monsters that seem sweet but if given a second look might surprise you. They definitely have something behind them, a story.
