Was born in 1987 in Los Angeles. She holds an MFA from Yale University (2014) and a BFA from California Institute of the Arts (2012). Lauren recently completed a residency at Recess (2016), The Studio Museum in Harlem (2014-2015) and is the recipient of the Rema Hort Mann Foundation Emerging Artist Award (2014).

The works exist as spatial metaphors for economic autonomy, self-definition and love.
