I’ve known Laura via Instagram for a few years – she’s an amazing musician aka She Makes War. She recently joined Sktchy and as soon as she did I added her photos to my Sktchy queue and planned to draw her asap. I’m so glad I got around to doing just that today. I drew this in my Moleskine sketchbook with Copic markers.

If you want to check out Laura’s music you can find it on Bandcamp at

Her Instagram name is @shemakeswar

I love drawing things. These days I am rarely found without a pen, pencil or stylus in my hands. In my working life I spend a lot of time in meetings and classrooms, reading papers and strategies, so my home life provides a creative antidote to all that! I also have chronic pain, lots of it. I have scoliosis, fibromyalgia and CRPS, so my life is a balancing act, trying to balance work, which make me feel part of the real world, with pain, which is ever present, and art, which soothes my pain.
