Introduction Lauren graduated from Duncan of Jordanstone College of art and Design with a BA (Hons) Degree in Time Based Art in 2008. She currently works at the Dundee Contemporary Arts which surrounds her with interesting creative energy! Based in Dundee Scotland, she shares her cosy flat with partner Andrew, check out his website at www.pandyland.net! A self confessed hoarder, Lauren hates waste and often recycles /rescues /restores many things which should probably be given away or binned. With a love of craft, and experimenting with new techniques, she takes great joy as an artist in the process of making a mess and starting all over again. She designs and makes Jewellery through her online persona wwwStarryeyedCrafts.com Lauren continues to direct and edit short films following the success of her final year piece "failed" which received some success most notably a nomination for non fiction award from the Royal Television Society and an award for collaborative work at the Stuttgart FilmWinter in Germany in 2009.
