Laura Leigh Bean

Hi there!

I'm Laura. Thanks for stopping by my little home on the internet!

I've always loved to draw and doodle. When I was little, I wanted to be a Disney animator. #TeamPocahontas!  Besides illustration and design, I am working furiously on my photography skills, much to the annoyance of my friends and family. Follow me on Instagram @lauraleighbean for lots of gratuitous food, city and cat snapshots. 

 I love to travel, but I love coming home to my beloved Chicago and two boys even more. My husband is my very good-looking best friend who happens to have the patience of a saint and makes me cry laughing, and my cat would kill me if only he were big enough, but I love him anyway. I am thinking about food approximately 95% of the time. I love to cook and try new restaurants. 

I work in marketing for a software company, and in my free time, I create illustrations or graphic design projects for small businesses, individuals, and friends. I'd love to help you, too!

Most importantly, thanks for stopping by! I'm so glad you're here.
