Lauren is a conceptual fine art photographer. She grew up in Illinois and was encouraged to be creative by her grandmother. After taking a film class in high school, Lauren fell in love with photography, and her passion for creating grew from there. 

After obtaining her bachelor's degree from Illinois State University, she started a portrait business, but she felt like something was missing. Lauren had always been drawn to conceptual dark art and in 2016 she decided to create her first conceptual self-portrait. This ignited a new spark within her and she's been chasing it ever since. 

Lauren creates dark dreamlike self-portraits. Through each image, she's finding her own identity and hopes to connect with others and inspire them to do the same.
