I can’t imagine my life without art. I feel most alive when I am creating. I started exploring art at a young age and went on to get my Bachelor’s degree in art education. After teaching in the public school system for 2 years, I decided to take a break, raise my daughter and son, and work on my personal art. I have been intrigued with watercolors and I am currently focusing on growing my skills.

The name Laurel and Pearl comes from the heart of why I create. My name, Lauren, means “crowned in Laurel leaves”. I have interpreted this as “crowned in royalty or success”. I believe I am created by a perfect Creator who has given me the skills and desires to create and so thats what I do! My daughter’s middle name, Marjorie, means “Pearl” and in this new season of motherhood, she inspires me to keep creating.
