After her spaceship crash landed on this planet, Lauren the Cartoon Goddess was raised by a nice family in the eastern United States. They assumed her interest in drawing little pictures was just an attribute of Martian tendencies and thankfully humoured her decision to pursue art as a career. That’s the bottom line – SHE MAKES ART (and websites).
Lauren is also a graphic arts educator. She has lectured, taught classes, given workshops, presentations and seminars for illustrators, cartoonists, animators and designers at various institutions of higher education, including Parsons School of Design, Syracuse University, The Joe Kubert School and duCret School of Art. Currently, she is teaching graphic design and web design at Middlesex County College and duCret School of Art.
When she is not drawing smiling monsters or pretending her bicycle is a rocket, Lauren can be found negotiating tree-trimming services from the local beavers in the swamp near her New Jersey home.
