Animation, photography
& visual art

Hello, my name is Laura and I'm an animator, photographer & general visual artist based in Cape Town, South Africa.

I love all things art-related, and work across several different mediums; here you'll find examples of my animation, photography, paintings, drawings and some of my other stuff.

For regularly updated content, be sure to check out my blog, Facebook and Instagram.

Thanks for stopping by, if you're keen to work together, please get in touch

I was born in 1989 in Cape Town, South Africa, and have always loved art.

I've been drawing and painting for as long as I can remember, discovering the joy of (stop motion) animation when I started using computers. At age 12 I made my first 'film', a 12 minute long claymation, and I was hooked ever since.

When I was around 14 I started taking photos, it's something I really enjoy and I often carry my camera with me wherever I go (which is mostly to gigs). I was a regular contributor to monthly Capetonian music magazine Your LMG between 2011 and 2013 and my work has also been featured in Rolling Stone South Africa, One Small Seed and All About Cats Magazine. Currently I freelance, shooting events for venues and music for Texx and the City as well as my blog.

Art provides a means of expression and escapism, and that's what I like best...I find inspiration in nature, music, mythology and dreams. I'm also a work-a-holic and like to be constantly busy; so if you'd like to work together, or just want to say hello, please get in touch.
I work with:

Photoshop (photographic retouching and maniplation, design, illustration), After Effects (animation), Flash (animation & basic AS2), Dreamweaver (HTML & CSS), Canon DSLRs and compacts, a PC (show me a Mac if you want to watch me squirm).

If you you'd like to work with me on a specific project, are interested in buying prints, have some thoughts you'd like to share or are just feeling friendly, please write to me at: hello(at)lauramccullagh.com.
