Hello! My name is Laura and I am the Founder of

Made by Women. I currently do all of the research

and the writing for each of the zines, and I also

deliver workshops and talks on topics related to women in the arts.

I graduated from the University of York in July 2019

in BA History of Art, during which I started making these zines about women artists I'd discovered

during my studies. I felt that there were many

women and queer artists who were being ignored or forgotten about during the course of Art History. I wanted a way to share all of my research that was easy to read, and accessible in cost, and I have been a fan of zines for a long time, so it made perfect sense!

Each of the zines are researched using academic

texts and articles, and I try to keep the language as straightforward as possible, so you don't need any

pre-existing art historical knowledge to understand them.  

India Minter is a designer who specialises

in image creation and illustration. India is passionate about feminism and gets involved in any opportunity to celebrate other women and their art. India's work involves a variety of mixed medias including screenprinting, lino cutting,

hand crafting and a range of digital creations. Her instagram is @indiaminter
