Hi there, I’m Lauryn! 

I am a visual artist and student at the University of Cincinnati's College of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning. I am currently working on a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, and an Art Education certificate. As an artist, I primarily work in 2-D mixed media and ceramics. My 2-D work is usually figurative drawings in graphite, combined with collage elements. A majority of my 2-D pieces work together to self reflect and examine my identity regarding race, gender, and upbringing. My ceramics focuses on aesthetics and the organic shapes, patterns, and colors that emphasize this. I enjoy the slow art process of finding the right color combinations that express the feelings I am trying to convey in my work, and the long and rewarding hands on process of ceramics to get to the final product.
