Gran Prix Winner of the Biennale for Illustration in Bratislava 2015  Laura Carlin studied at the Royal College of Art, and won several awards including the Quentin Blake Award two years running, and the National Magazine Award. She also received the Uniqlo Fashion Illustration Award in both 2003 and 2004, which enabled her to travel to Shanghai and Tokyo. A prolific drawer and painter, she also works on ceramics. Laura currently works in an advisory role with the development of Quentin Blake's House of Illustration. She is also a regular visiting lecturer at the University for the Creative Arts at Maidstone.

She is also the winner of the prestigious 2011 V&A Illustration Award.

On her win at the BIB 2015 the judges said 'The Iron Man and A world of your own are two diverse narratives, both created in a confident and highly-skilled personal visual language in a variety of media.
Laura Carlin moves with ease, yet with great care between different moods, demonstrating both sensitivity and a sense of humour. The smallest vignettes as well as double-paged illustrations are composed with care and the pages are paced to perfection. Innovative design-features are always functional, never applied in a flippant or gimmicky manner. With a sense for detail as well as a clear view of the ‘whole’, these books are brilliant examples of a dialogue between technique and medium and an extensive frame of reference.'
