Lara Porter

I am an illustrator based in Sydney Australia, originally from South Africa.

My creative career started out in advertising as a designer at The Jupiter Drawing Room, Cape Town. A side-line career in editorial illustration working for South African magazines earned me extra income as a junior. A decade and a few agencies later I held the role of art director at M&C Saatchi, Sydney. It was in these stimulating environments that I honed my conceptual and aesthetic skills. Fortunately my illustration ability was also often called upon and given the opportunity to grow.

Whilst living in the UK some years later, I decided to follow my passion and completed a BA Honours Degree in Illustration at the University of the West of England. In 2008 I made the permanent move to Australia with my young family.

My focus is editorial illustration and illustration for advertising/design agencies as this is where my experience lies, but I am open to any other creative opportunities.
