Laura Sullivan

With over a decade of experience in the industry, Laura is an extremely adaptable animator with expertise across media and software. While most of her original work is characterized by a stylized use of watercolor and ink illustration, she can also recognize what works with a client’s brand and tailor her style to fit their needs, all with a creative, strategic eye.

When we are green, still half-created, we believe that our dreams are rights, that the world is disposed to act in our best interests, and that falling and dying are for quitters. We live on the innocent and monstrous assurance that we alone, of all people ever born, have a special arrangement whereby we will be allowed to stay green forever.” 

– Tobias Wolfe
