Lauren is a contemporary realism painter who works mainly in oil – but she also enjoys gouache and drawing. After obtaining her BFA in Fashion Design from The Fashion Institute of Technology, she worked in fashion, venture capital and jewelry in New York before deciding to take the leap of faith and move to Florida in 2021 to pursue her real passion of painting. Having been a self-taught artist ever since she was little, she honed in on her skills at The New York Academy of Art and The School of Visual Arts while in New York. Currently, she has been focused on painting different perspectives of water and figures underwater. Lauren is excited to immerse herself in the South Florida creative community and help people through her art.
