"My husband was impressed with Lauren‘s artworks from the moment he saw them. We loved her paintings, the beach landscapes, colours and figures. I was throughly impressed with the consultation with Lauren from the very beginning of the process. We discussed with Lauren the beaches that are meaningful to us and the activities our children enjoy. She was able to capture our children and their personalities in an effortless photo shoot. The photographs we will cherish forever. Following the photoshoot, Lauren discussed with us a colour scheme and we drew on objects from our house and even flowers from our garden. Lauren shared her process and videos of her painting our artwork. The final piece hangs proudly in the entrance of our house. Lauren went far and beyond our expectations. The photographs and the painting are amazing! "

"I saw Lauren’s painting ‘Pink Sun’ which immediately captivated me as it reminded me of happy beach holidays with our 2 children. I contacted Lauren to suggest a commission. Lauren asked for photos of my children to get a sense of their relationship. I told her that my son had died 3 years ago and that I wanted the painting to depict the love and protectiveness that his older sister had towards him. Lauren was extremely sensitive to her subjects, she communicated regularly with me and readily made any changes I requested. I love the painting I received. All my communications with Lauren were positive and caring. I would encourage anyone contemplating giving a commission to proceed. You won’t be disappointed! "-Sue

"Working with Lauren was a dream. To see an image of our children that is so special to us, transform into a gorgeous piece of art, made us so happy. The whole process was super easy and Lauren’s turnaround times were incredible. I was drawn to her work because of the way she uses colour and I love the idea of having a piece that’s both meaningful and beautiful. Lauren provided updates along the way and I really appreciated that she checked in with us to get my our feedback on what she had created.. and of course we loved it at every stage. Thanks so much Lauren for using your wonderful creative talents to make a piece for us that we will treasure forever".

My boys

"It has been an incredible process from start to finish in commissioning Lauren to prepare a painting of our three boys. Not only did she provide a photo shoot at the location of our choice, but she captured our boys playing together and creating memories together. She consulted us on the colours we like and what she thought would look good in our home and provided her professional advice. It was such a quick turnaround from the photo shoot to presenting us with the finished painting. Looking at the painting evokes so many emotions as Narrabeen rock pools has been a place that we have shared lots of fun memories with our boys and I will cherish this painting for years to come. You are so talented Lauren and I highly recommend you!!"

"After our family lost our dog Beni, my husband and I wanted to capture Beni with our children in a painting to hang in our home. After contacting you on Instagram I knew you were the right person to capture this special memory for our family. You made the process very easy and collaborative, which I loved! I didn't let my husband see the progress pictures you sent along the way, I wanted to surprise him. When our painting arrived He was amazed, he absolutely loved it. Beni was his dog before we had children, so Beni holds a very special place in his heart. Thank you so much for this beautiful art work. It means so much to us, the kids thought it was awesome too! You are very talented. This piece will be cherished for many years. Thank you ~ One very happy family."

I am in absolute awe of how you have managed to do this". Kate's family have a special spot where they explore rockpools together and find lots of different interesting sea creatures and shells.

"My boys and I share a love of the surf and spending time at the beach with them whenever we can is a very important part of our lives. We have heaps of photographs of the boys but wanted something special for our home. So when my wife and I learned about Lauren's paintings we were thrilled. We couldn't be happier with this piece. Lauren listened to what we were after and delivered more than we could have wished for. The artwork is a great talking point and a feature of our home. Thank you."
