Laura Andriessen is an illustrator from Ghent who recently graduated from KASK School of Arts. In her work, she tries to translate instinctive emotions and urges into images. The format of fairytales especially lends itself to these themes. Throughout her work, the focus is on atmosphere, providing only hints of a narrative. She tries to balance melancholy and playfulness in her work, but sometimes the balance is lost in one way or another.
