Lauren’s work relies heavily on botanical imagery, either in simple appreciation of its beauty or to convey her life experiences. Although she is most drawn to fibers, Lauren also enjoys printmaking and combining the two interests through a body of work she describes as embroidered prints. These embroidered prints allow her to experiment and add a 3rd dimension to an otherwise flattened medium. Lauren recently earned her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts (Fiber Arts concentration) from James Madison University.
