Lauren Patrell’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 working in ceramics and with salvaged materials. Through pieces like Rose Path and Love Sick, Lauren uses flowers to symbolize feelings of longing and love. Currently, Lauren is completing a Bachelor’s in Fine Arts at James Madison University with a concentration in fiber arts.

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 throughout Michigan, 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.

Lauren is also trained as a professional framer, previously working at Frames Unlimited in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan.
