About LaurenTaylorCreates

On Etsy since 2011

Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself...

“ a little girl all I did, all day, was create. I drew and colored and painted everywhere, even all over the walls of my home. That small Northern California town was my world, and that world was my canvas. As I continue to create today, I have unfolded my canvas across the globe, drawing inspiration from my travels from Hawaii to Spain, Colombia to Ireland, New York to Morocco. There is such immense beauty on this earth and I am driven to capture and reflect it through my work...”

Custom Orders: I offer custom variations of paintings I've already created or I can collaborate with you to create something completely new! I will work directly with you to come up with something that you will absolutely love! A custom painting will take me approximately 2 weeks to complete after inception.
