Lauren is a Phoenix-based painter who is inspired by the raw and real human figure. She explores ideas of the natural human, vulnerability, and truth within her paintings. Her goal in each painting is to depict her subject in the most honest way possible and to tell their story through paint. Through her work, Lauren challenges typical beauty standards and wishes to emphasize and normalize the natural beauty of all her subjects.
Lauren is classically trained under several mentors at Scottsdale Artist's School. She also has degrees in Painting and Art Education from Arizona State University. Her work has accumulated multiple awards both on the academic and professional levels.
