Artist for Hire: Commissions; Visual Arts: Illustration
I’m Laina Iarocci, a self-taught illustrator specializing in portraiture and sketch art.
Raised in Northeast Ohio, I always had a passion in capturing the world around me using the most simple medium of a graphite pencil. I am most inspired to capture the expressions and emotions of people, animals, and inanimate objects I see in my day-to-day life. I earned a degree in Fashion Merchandising from Kent State University in 2014 and have continued to draw in my free time away from my career in the corporate world.
I am currently based in Cuyahoga Falls and accept freelance opportunities when they are available or asked of me.
I hope to turn this into more than just a hobby in the near future, with an interest in taking on a tattoo apprenticeship and/or continuing commissioned work.
