Lauren's artwork and architectural design explore the intersection between representational and abstract forms. Through investigations of context, material, color and light, she places value on the experiential qualities that shape how we view a piece of art and experience space.

Originally from Louisiana, Lauren received her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from Washington University's Sam Fox School of Art & Design and her Master of Architecture degree from Harvard University's Graduate School of Design. She has exhibited her work in New York City, Paris, St. Louis, and New Orleans. Lauren recently moved from New York City to Providence, Rhode Island and currently teaches in the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) Department of Architecture.
