Hello Everyone! :)

Visit my Website here:

My name is Lauren[ry] and I am a college student attending school in Michigan's b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l. upper peninsula. I'm going for a degree in Art Education, with a minor in History; two things I absolutely love. Although my academic concentration is in Illustration, my true artistic passion comes in the form of polymer clay.

I've been working in this medium for about 11 years, but the first six were spent making simple colored round beads and miniature food; things I quickly grew bored with. After getting a couple books on caning techniques for Christmas one year, I decided that was something I needed to learn. So here I am!

I like to focus on organic, and curvilinear forms. Living in an area heavily associated with nature and Lake Superior, inspiration for this type of design is easy to come by.

I also like to put a heavy emphasis on color. Using the clay colors directly from the package is something I generally try to avoid. Mixing my own blends creates endless possibilities and each piece is different from the next.

Non-art-related things I feel you should know:
- I <3 llamas.
- I am an absolute nerd [Star Trek, Harry Potter, the works..]
- I have a wonderful boyfriend named Seth.
- I am basically blind as a bat with out my glasses/contacts
- I enjoy eating.
- I enjoy reading.
- I own 5 cats! :D
- I actually like snow.
- I like heavy metal, classic, and alternative rock... with the German band Rammstein being the epitome of awesomeness.

I love talking with people and making friends! If you have any sort of question [or advice!] feel free to share.

Current Residence: Good ol' Grand Rapids
Favourite genre of music: ROCK
Wallpaper of choice: Art from my fellow Deviants
Favourite cartoon character: I always had a crush on Prince Zuko
Hello to anyone reading this!

I just want to send a big thank you to anyone who has been favoriting my work, visiting my page, watching me, and everything else that comes along with it. I have fairly limited internet access, so its hard for me to log on and reply to every notification I have. Just because I don't message you, doesn't mean I'm not thankful. I try to reply to all comments and watches, but you might not see it for a couple of weeks! 

I thought I'd have more time to make stuff once I was out of college, but life doesn't always seem to work out that way. As I figure out my schedule and make time between my four part-time jobs, keep looking for new stuff, and soon I hope to re-open my Etsy store.

Thanks again!

<3 Lauren
