Laura Feller works as an independent artist and illustrator with a focus on buildings & sustainable architecture, a topic she has finished her thesis in. Her motifs are influenced by mindful experiences while travelling and living in Australia, Indonesia and New Zealand. 

Laura was born into a creative family and grew up on a small organic farm in Austria. Thus a strong sense for nature and the beauty of our planet accompany her on her journey. She discovered her passion for surfing in 2016 and it has shaped her life and creative work since then.

From a background in architecture Laura’s style fluctuates between clean black and white line drawings and free flowing watercolour. As a canvas paper, walls and windows take turns and new challenges make her thrive.

⚐ At the moment she is based in New Plymouth, New Zealand, working for customers from Austria and all around the world.
