About Laura

 Hi, My name is Laura Sfiat and I thank you for visiting my site. This site has a curated selection of works, my full portfolio and more samples can always be found in my blog and social media. I’ll tell you a little about me. I have done illustration for over twenty years. I currently work as a graphic designer for the creative services firm Williams Lea in Boston. In January 2014 I founded Urban Sketchers Boston, a local community of sketching enthusiasts. My goal was to promote the practice of hand renderings, drafting by hand seems to have become a lost art. It is an indispensable skill in all graphics professions.

I teach workshops on illustration and architectural watercolor renderings on occasion. I have traditional training in hand rendering techniques from architectural college from back in the 1990’s. Additionally, portraiture has been a focus on my development for personal enjoyment. Check out my YouTubeChannel HERE, and while you’re at it, kindly Subscribe :D. I keep a blog about my work process, thoughts and new collections:  CITYSKETCHERBOSTON
