Lauren considers herself to be a surrealist. She takes inspiration from forms, words, meanings and function to create imagery that is surprising, peculiar and humorous yet also has a strange sense of logic. Inspiration often comes from narratives found in the world around her. She is atrracted to gray areas, oxymorons, wordplay, wit and uncanny circumstances. Embracing chance, happy accidents, and experimenting with different materials and methods to achieve the desired outcome. Collaborating with others is just as important to her as working independently.
