Lauren is an acrylic painter and graphic designer living and working in Calgary, Alberta. She studied design and illustration at Alberta University of the Arts and has a bachelor’s degree in Visual Communications.

Her paintings are guided by her experience in design and illustration and that one summer where she worked as a cake decorator. Her dreamlike works explore light and colour as a catalyst to examine the mundane spaces of the human experience. Through decontextualizing or isolating the subject, her work recognises the significance of the insignificant.

Her work is an invitation to take a closer look at the everyday, and the role design plays in these moments.
