Lauren is an artist, horticulturist and art educator who is motivated by creating and sharing art that is accessible, functional and playful. She especially loves to see her students discover new works of art and see the world differently.
Lauren studied at the Victorian College of the Arts, completing a Bachelor of Fine Art (Honours) and fell in love with Ceramics during her Honours’ year where she spent the year focused on mastering clay.
She splits her time between her role as MAMA Studio Coordinator & Educator and her farm on Jaithmathang Country, Dederang, from where she runs a gardening business, private studio and enjoys hiking in the mountains.
Lauren combines her love of gardening and art-making to create ceramics that are infused with inspiration from the natural world. Her garden, local landscape and the Victorian High Country inform her creative practice through colours, textures, shapes and themes. Time spent outdoors is the perfect partner to her studio practice.
Lauren will be teaching the Wednesday morning session.
