About me

I am Lauren, an illustrator based in my studio in Bournemouth; the beach inspires me regularly. I opened my business in 2019 from my bedroom whilst studying at The Arts University. I use a variety of media and I showcase my work in various sizes. Driven around social and environmental issues I enjoy using bright colours and texture in my images. I hope that my artworks can connect emotionally to people to bring them happiness to a home! See more of what I do here: https://linktr.ee/laurenlovestudio
