ABOUT  Lauren

I am an artist and educator who enjoys living in the western mountains of Maine. The artwork I create is greatly influenced by time spent outdoors. I consider myself a keen observer of the natural world and someone who likes to be in beautiful places.  I recently have been spending time in Grand Teton National Park  and the woods, mountains, and stream beds in Maine.

Education:

 My education comes from experiences both in the classroom and out.  I have been a working artist and art educator for over 30 years.  Much of the work I create is crafted at the forge; metal is a particular favorite. 

I earned my BA in Studio Art from Hobart  and William Smith Colleges and  I have attended numerous workshops at Craft Institutions around the country  including Haystack Mountain School of Crafts and Penland Craft School.
