Hawaii-based artist and graphic designer, Lauren Roth, has a style so distinct that one immediately knows it’s a Lauren Roth piece. Her artwork, a combination of specialty paper, watercolor, acrylic, ink, chalk and paint markers, capture her signature whimsical expression of simple objects found in life. Dreamy colors and organic shapes, layered on textured surfaces, invite the viewer to explore her intricate interpretations where one quickly discovers the labor of love Lauren puts into each piece she creates.
To Lauren, both her graphic designs and fine art pieces are an expression of what she sees and what she wants to express to the world. The places she has lived and traveled hold a heavy influence on her work, as does the breathtaking scenery in her everyday surrounds on the island of Oahu.
Originally from New Jersey, Lauren received her BFA in Illustration from the prestigious Savannah College of Art and Design, with a minor in Art History Lauren has since worked as an artist and in the marketing team for Whole Foods Market in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut, Peru and Hawaii, which has seen her create in-store signage, murals, window displays, t-shirt designs and a line of reusable bags.
Lauren maintains a steady flow of gallery exhibitions, artworks for magazine editorial, graphic design projects and mural displays. She is a permanent featured artist at many galleries and boutiques across the Hawaiian Islands. In 2012 Lauren was a semi-finalist, representing Honolulu, in the national RAW Awards, supporting independent artists.
