Lauren’s pieces draw inspiration from the life she shares with her husband, Jonathan, and their three children in North Louisiana. Her works are a creative mixture of her love of interior design and background in graphic arts. A graduate of Louisiana Tech University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Graphic Design, Lauren acquired an understanding of fine arts during her studies, combined with the intense precision of graphic arts. It was during that time that Lauren fell in love with color theory and attaining the perfect balance that make the colors and forms in her works sing. 

Upon her graduation, Lauren spent 10 years pursing her career in graphic design and sales before deciding to stay home with her two boys to enjoy motherhood. During that time, she also began doing freelance interior design work. While navigating the newborn stage with her third child, Lauren was inspired to begin creating original works once again and dug out her paint and brushes. Lauren paints while imagining the space in which her pieces will one day live. Places much like her own home that are gathering places for friends and family, bustling with family energy and fun.
