Lauren is a craft artist, activist and community organizer from Toronto, Ontario.
She received a Bachelor of Arts with Honours from the University of Toronto in 2013 and upon graduating, moved to England where she completed an intensive fine woodworking program at the Williams & Cleal Furniture School. She held her first solo exhibition of free standing furniture in 2015 at Paper Arts Gallery, Bristol, UK.
In 2016 Lauren relocated to Hamilton, Ontario where she joined the Hamilton Audio Visual Node, an artist-run centre for the development, documentation and dispersal of multi-media arts. She also co-founded Sister Moon Collective with partner S.K. Hughes, an initiative focused on the intersection of arts and community while prioritizing creating thoughtful safer spaces. Sister Moon is responsible for creating Moon Milk, a monthly poetry series in Hamilton which provides a platform for local and international artists to share their work with an engaged and supportive audience. The collective has also showcased work at events and music festivals including Long Winter, Camp Wavelength, and the Strangewaves Music and Arts Festival.
Lauren continues to create new work in a shared studio in Hamilton’s East end. For inquiries about commissioning a piece or installation work please get in contact at firstname.lastname@example.org
