Hi, I’m Lauren!
In 2015, I was a newly married art teacher, working on putting bits and bobs together to make our house feel like a home. I wanted to fill our home with items that were joyful, colorful, and expressed what was important to us. I searched high and low for home decor that spoke to us and the season of life we were entering, but could not find anything!
I busted out my watercolor paints and began painting pictures of my beautiful wedding bouquet, which was now dull and dusty in a box. I created a painting of my husband and I in our wedding attire, next to our lovably insane dogs, who were not present at our wedding.
Through painting, I could capture a moment and feeling in a way a snapshot could not.
I posted photos of these paintings on social media, and had an overwhelming request for paintings from friends and family. I was so thrilled to tell people’s stories through art.
Everything was going well, but I felt like something was missing. I wanted to make more of an impact through my art, so I decided to give to my local animal shelter, Young Williams, with every pet portrait sold.
With your support, we have fed over 500 pets in need!
Today I capture my clients’ unique seasons of life through custom watercolor paintings of their pets, families, and their homes. I even created a line of mugs, totes and pillows that are the perfect gift for people who are crazy about their pets.
