I’m Lauren. Welcome to my home on the internet. This is a place where I sell and share all my creations. I live in Cape Town, at the foot of Table Mountain and have 2 dogs, 2 cats and a best friend husband. I've been working as a professional illustrator since 2008 after graduating with a B.A at the AAA School of Advertising in 2007.
I’m very influenced and inspired by fynbos. My daily walks on the mountain keep me connected to the Cape floral kingdom and it comes through in a lot of my work. My other creative influence is that of the spirit realm, sacred geometry and patterns. The detailed abstract works, pattern and mandala work are all meditation for me. I could sit for hours without eating or resting doing this. My hands were built for making tiny tiny lines. I love it.
Cross stitch is a craft very dear to my heart. Cross stitch invokes the practice of patience and stillness whilst still keeping the hands busy, especially in this instant gratification, fast-paced world we live in. A kind of productive meditation.
My newsletter is a space where I get to flesh out ideas with you. If you’d like to become a co-creator of my artworks, you’re invited! Please add your email to my list here. I can’t wait to create with you!
