Lauren's subtle humour, curious textures and expressive colours are all comprised in her artwork. She is a graduate of the BAA Illustration program from Sheridan College as well as the Post-Graduate Certificate Program in Web Development. She is proven a very dedicated and hard-working individual. Her small town ways, big city living and travels have expanded her visual resources, communication skills and outlook on life. She is an avid participator so you can find her networking at different web workshops or conferences or spending time volunteering for her community, primarily with children. She is a dedicated member of the pilot (now in full gear) Teaching Kids to Code program with the Royal Bank of Canada.

Le travail visuel de Lauren se compose d'humour subtile, de textures étonnantes et de couleurs expressives. Elle a obtenu son diplôme au programme d'illustration au Sheridan College et le certificat de développement web du troisième cycle au Humber College. Elle s'avère être une personne très dévouée et travailleuse. Ses habitudes issues des petites bourgades, son vécu en ville et ses voyages lui ont permis d'élargir ses ressources visuelles et ses perspectives dans la vie. Elle adore apprendre et attend avec impatience de nouveaux défis.
