Chicago based artist/illustrator Laura Berger works primarily in acrylic and gouache. She also likes making things out of clay and creating little animations. Her work is focused on exploring our connections to ourselves and each other, and the idea of finding novelty and adventure in everyday life. She is interested in and inspired by ritual, symbols, nature, dreams, travel, our quest for self-development, and how we piece it all together to create personal meaning and a sense of belonging to the greater whole.
