Laura McCabe works in pen and ink, gouache and acrylic on paper. Her images are almost dream-like with combination of vivid colors with odd, and at times dark, imagery. She combines the natural world with man made objects, the realistic with the impossible, and the fantastical with the everyday to communicate a story or emotion to the viewer.
Laura went to school for illustration at Pratt Institute and graduated with honors in 2007. Since then she has made some artwork for album covers and her drawings have appeared in publications such as the San Francisco Chronicle and Tin House Magazine.
Born and raised in Massachusetts, Laura also lived briefly in Germany while she was a teenager. She has lived in New York City since 2001 and currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
