june feature artist - lauren morris
Lauren was born in Cape Town, South Africa and moved to Vancouver in 2000. She studied at the Cape Technikon as a Graphic Designer before moving on to pursue the Fine Arts. “Art is always an expression of something; whether an idea, image or feeling. Flowers are my passion and I strive for a simplicity within my work while being unique. I enjoy working with colors, reflections, shadows and light. Painting predominantly in acrylics and mixed media, I hope to inspire thought and to evoke the viewers’ emotions through visual imagery”. Lauren studied at the Corcoran School of Art in Washington D.C. and the Emily Carr University of Art and Design in Vancouver. "For the past three years, she participated in the "Vancouver Eastside Culture Crawl" and "Artists in Our Midst". Lauren’s other exhibits include, three group shows as well as a Solo show at the "Sidney and Gertrude Zack Gallery", a duo show at the "Amelia Douglas Gallery" and a Solo show at the "Jericho Arts Centre". She has also participated in "Local" a pop up shop for upcoming artists, Dinner by Design, Vancouver Interior Design Show and “Art Vancouver an International Art Fair”.
