My Artist Story

Aloha! My name is Lauren Taylor-Davis and I'm a Graphic and Textile Artist born and raised on the island of Kaua’i. As you can see, I’m in love with Hawaiian patterns and everything they represent—tropical blooms, leafy palms, and bright colors inspired by the beautiful island I’m so happy to call home.

For the last 13 years, I have worked in the Surf Industry, designing textiles and graphics for iconic brands including Billabong, Roxy, Crazy Shirts, PacSun, Rusty, Hinano Tahiti, and Mikoh. Recently, I decided to start making my own designs—turning my watercolor paintings, illustrations, and tropical collages into fun, Hawaiian-inspired accessories. In my shop, you’ll find everything from beach towels and pouches to cards, and home decor—all featuring brightly colored patterns from some of my favorite hand painted watercolor designs.

Where it All Began

Now, let me start from the beginning. While growing up in Kilauea, Kaua’i, surfing was my life. I spent my high school years competing in longboard contests, collaging my bedroom walls, and creating handmade greeting cards. I spent my first two years after high school taking as many art classes as possible, including Chinese brush painting, acrylic, illustration, and watercolor. After exhausting my options with what was available to me on Kaua’i, I moved to California. This was a life-changing step that would define my path for the next several years.

My Move to the Mainland & The Art School Days

Moving to Orange County when I was 20 years old was an extremely exciting time for me. Attending FIDM and learning all the design programs really opened my eyes to all of the fun opportunities I could pursue in Graphic Design. My first job after college was designing CD packaging in Hollywood with an Art Director, but when an opportunity in apparel graphics at Billabong popped up, I snagged the opportunity —no questions asked. Though I didn’t know anything about apparel graphics at the time, their art director gave me my first chance, and I ran with it! Designing my first two seasons for the Juniors division was an incredible experience.

My First “I made it!” Moment

Seeing my art on clothing in Billabong stores was a huge moment for me. I even started seeing people around town wearing my designs, which really blew my mind. At the end of the season, I had 2 best sellers which really topped it off.

My Dream Gig

As a teenager I was obsessed with everything Roxy, so when I was offered an opportunity to join their design team in 2008, I was starstruck. Walking through those doors was one of the best days of my life, and although my time there was short-lived because of the economy, it was a dream come true to create art for a brand I idolized as a kid.

Spreading My Wings

After Roxy, I decided to explore the freelance world so that I could create art without being held down by a cubicle or corporate structure. I started working for a ton of brands, including Rusty, PacSun, a company that made bikinis for Target, Crazy Shirts, and Hinano Tahiti, which ended up being my main gig in Huntington Beach for the next 7 years. In the meantime, I continued to build my freelance business over the years, working for as many brands as I could and learning a great deal about the entire design process. Designing art for tees, boardshorts, aloha shirts, bikinis, and even catalogs.
