Lauren is also a scenic painter in the film industry & finds wonder in this communal making very satisfying. Her main mediums in her own work currently are acrylic paint, and assembled sculptures. Her subject matter tends to be abstract views of nature, from landsats to microscopic views. Currently she is investigating the sacredness of Australian Aboriginal Dot painting with realistic sacred symbols and objects .
Many elements are important to my, Making.
The Process being the most important. I control, every step of the way.
Nothing is random. I enjoy all stages -- revel in it. The end result is Always a CHEZZAM, Never a disappointment because it is also a step,
and reminder of the Process. Art Making with others consists of open communication
and willingness for adaptation.
The end result is even better than a single person’s idea.
