About Me

Lauren has lived on both coasts of Canada, always within reach of the sea.  She currently lives in a 140-year-old house in the wilds of Nova Scotia with her librarian husband, two curious children, an ever-expanding collection of books, two hives of bees, and one cat.  She has a Visual Arts BFA with Honours from the University of Victoria, and a certificate of Fine Furniture from Camosun College.  Along the way, she has learned to make a Queen Anne Highboy, a pottery mug, a hand knit pair of socks, a headstand, and a mess.  She is represented by Jackie Kaiser at Westwood Creative Artists. 

I believe in wonder. 
I believe in rain, 
and eggs that hatch, 
and plants that dance. 
I believe in the hum of bees 
saving summer for a winter’s day, 
and memories of places we have never been, 
and the scent of a loved one, 
drifting in the wind. 
Mushrooms that appear overnight, 
arms that hold the world at bay, 
the particular taste of biting into 
a slice of chocolate cake, 
geese that call each other home,
frogs that sing the approach of 
spring.  
I believe in the moon, 
and the stars, 
and the spaces in between.  
I touch my heart and feel it beat. 
I believe that wonder appears 
when we allow ourselves 
to allow ourselves 
to see.
