Hello, I'm Lauren, a contemporary textiles artist based in Sheffield. With a foundation rooted in a BA Hons in Fashion and Textiles and further sculpted through a Masters in Accessories Design, my educational journey has been a canvas for honing artistic expression. Beyond academia, my role as a creative educator for vulnerable adults has added depth to my understanding, fostering a commitment to inclusivity and empowering others through the transformative power of art.

As an artist, I engage in the meditative artistry of slow stitching, using deliberate techniques that reflect my commitment to mindfulness. Fueled by a passion for ethically informed creations, my work often draws inspiration from the rich cultural tapestries of Africa, India, and Mexico. I draw not only from their vibrant visual landscapes but also from the traditional embroidery techniques passed down by my older generations, weaving a connection to heritage into each piece.

Utilizing specialist hand-dyeing techniques, screen printing, applique, batik, hand-embroidery, and beading, I sculpt a visual ode to the microscopic wonders of nature—crafting artworks that transcend time, becoming revered relics of unseen beauty.

Simultaneously, my art is driven by a deep environmental ethos. I am an advocate for sustainability, utilizing reclaimed materials whenever possible. My artworks carry a powerful environmental message, serving as a celebration of nature's unseen beauty and a plea for the protection of our planet. In the face of ecological challenges, my work is a call to embrace and worship the beauty of our world before it slips away.


May my art resonate as a call to action, compelling us to reflect on the fragility of our planet, the vulnerability of humanity, and the imperative to protect that which is truly vital.

Thank you for visiting my site. I love a challenge and welcome collaborations and commissions, as they offer exciting opportunities to explore new artistic horizons."
