Artist: Marine Laurent

Marine Laurent is a freelance illustrator and graphic designer. Graduating with a degree in Graphic Design and a Master's degree in Digital Creation, she now lives and works out of Paris.

Laurent's Instagram page is a flurry of earthy greens and cottage core motifs that instantly entice you to escape to the countryside and gaze at the stars. Her unique style celebrates nature in all its glory and combines leafy illustrations with fluid feminine forms to create work that is truly special. A consistent colour palette of toasty burnt oranges, creamy off whites and forest greens represents Laurent's signature colours - her work would feel perfect in a space that feels organic and grounded.

The intricate, delicate finishes to her work are a feast for the eyes and complete the warm, cosy figures that are smiling back at you. Her cast of characters are rosy-cheeked and gentle, evoking a sense of peace and calm. There is a serenity throughout Laurent's work that is hard to come by. You will find a consistent theme of humans and nature living side by side, holding hands and giving back. Her works tell a beautiful story, and one we should all listen to.
