Lauren was born & raised in Cincinnati & moved to Charlotte in high school. Lauren was a creative child (illustrating her own fashion catalog!) but it was through her art teacher’s influence that her passion and excitement for the visual arts was instilled.
Lauren earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education with minors in Studio Art and Psychology from Queens University.
In addition to teaching at Small Hands Big Art since Jan., 2016, Lauren teaches art at Weddington Christian Academy during the school year.
In her free time, Lauren enjoys traveling, DIY home decor projects, and thrift & consignment shopping!
