Laura McKellar



One of my favorite artists at the moment is Melbourne based artist/illustrator Laura McKellar. All of her work is fantastic, but these mixed media pieces, from the Once Upon Exhibition (aMBUSH Gallery, Sydney), are at the top of my list! Each of the 30 participating artists were given a fairytale to interpret in their own way, and clearly, Laura was given The Ugly Duckling by Hans Christian Anderson. Ahh, nothing like vintage photographs, embroidery, and a bunch of swan masks to help an ugly duckling transform into something beautiful.
