Drawings + Paintings


"When I draw, I am at peace. Almost in meditation. I make patterns and connections and am contemplative. When I paint, I am at play. I play with color, shape, and symbols."

Lauren Clayton has works for sale and is available for commissioned work as well. Lauren is a member of SHIM Network, an art network for artists, curators, and galleries. A selection of current works are available on Artsy.net.
