Lauren Patrell is a student pursuing a bachelor’s degree in studio art at Oakland University. Lauren has worked with many different mediums including ceramics, film photography, drawing, collage, metal jewelry, and fiber. She finds herself most attracted to mediums that allow her to create art that is a useable object and fulfills an everyday purpose, such as fibers and ceramics. Lauren is inspired by the tranquility of nature; she enjoys observing the details of plants and the patterns they create. Plants and flowers have been the subject of many of her photography, drawing, and fiber works.

Lauren started her own purse company, Limited Production by Lauren Patrell (LP by LP), in 2013. From 2013 to 2017 her purses were sold at various art galleries and shows including the Detroit Artist Market, the Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center, and the Huron Valley Artist Market. All remaining purses are now available in Lauren’s Etsy Shop.

Currently, Lauren works as a custom framer at Frames Unlimited in Bloomfield Hills, MI.
