“Finding the beauty that God creates in life gives me great purpose and makes me excited every day.”
And like her story, her artistic style is uniquely her own. “I can’t ever think of an exact way to describe it,” Lauren says with a laugh. But she says her works are “very loose and a bit impressionistic.” Using a palette knife she layers a wooden panel made by her husband with texture before filling it in with acrylic paints allowing the different colors to show through. From there, she never has a specific plan but says the painting simply evolves.
“I love color, and I love to see how a color interacts with another color and the different feeling it creates,” Lauren says. And it’s that nostalgic feeling of home and beauty and perhaps a hidden story that makes Lauren’s work appeal to so many.
