About Lauren

I am a Los Angeles born and Oakland based artist who has been painting for over twenty years. I graduated with a BFA in Illustration from California College of the Arts with distinction in 2010, and am beginning graduate school at San Francisco Art Institute in Fall 2016 to continue my studies in contemporary painting.

I have experience as a teaching assistant during my undergraduate studies at CCA, and since graduation have held lectures and demonstrations on campus to incoming and current students. I am an active member of the alumni association and is currently an undergraduate mentor to a promising junior standing illustration student. I also have experience in private tutoring, particularly in observational drawing and art school application portfolio preparation. My preferred tutoring style is to work with students individually to cater to their unique interests and goals, while maintaining a positive attitude.

I currently live and work in Oakland, CA.

My skills include observational drawing, drawing techniques, charcoal, graphite, plein air painting, portraiture, oil painting, acrylic painting, figure drawing, figure painting, figure study, outdoor drawing/painting, art school application, portfolio feedback, and critique - all levels welcome!

Feel free to contact me for more information or with any questions you may have. I look forward to working with you! :-)
