I don't usually make large art purchases, but I love her work and took a chance requesting a custom order. Lauren was very prompt in responding to my messages and was sure to check in with me, throughout every step of the process. She seem genuinely enthused about the project and it turned out fabulously, showing her amazing artistry, attention to detail and emotional understanding of the subject matter. I can't wait to give it as gift, this holiday season!

About

Visual artist, mama, happy painter.

In 2009 I became an artist full time and opened my shop. I sold original paintings and t-shirts from my living room. In 2010 opened a studio in the Casket Arts Building. Now I have two small CEOs and my studio is a bright white room in my home again. I paint in the sunshine, infusing my artwork with joy, love and happiness.

As the years go by my art has transitioned from mostly abstract to the wonderfully whimsical, and is always brightly colored. Like my evolving art practice, the purpose of my art has evolved and focused on the pursuit of happiness. I paint brightly colored fat birds wearing glasses, bears floating from balloons, bikes to love, and bright colors to make you happy. All in the name of bring more joy into the world.

    I like to paint things that make me happy like fluffy fat birds wearing designer glasses and brilliantly colored bikes. I'm currently digging geometric shapes and ombre inspired tone changes. You know, the good stuff that makes people happy.

Payment
I prefer direct payment or Paypal for my Etsy orders. If this doesn't work for you, please email me and we can figure out another option, such as the old fashioned way of mailing me a check. This of course, will take longer, as payment needs to clear before I can ship an order.

I love special orders and can usually turn around an original piece designed just for you within 2-3 weeks. Payment is due in full before I start making the piece, but I will send drawings before you agree to anything. Custom orders are not refundable.
Shipping
I can usually ship the items you see in my shop within a week of your order date. If that changes I will send you an email and let you know what to expect. If you have a deadline please let me know and I will try to accommodate.
Refunds and Exchanges
If you are not happy with your purchase of anything that's listed on the site, I will refund it if returned within one week of receipt. Customer must notify me of their intent to return an item, so that I know I will be here to receive it. Refunds will be made if piece is returned in good condition.

Again, I do not offer refunds for custom orders.
