FOUNDER AND WRITER
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.

Contemporary Women Illustrators
Thanks to our talented illustrators, each issue of the zine has a unique look with illustrations made specially for that issue.
