Lauren Smith is a mixed media artist based in Scotland. Born in Edinburgh, Lauren studied Fashion at Edinburgh College of Art before going on to complete a Master’s degree in Textiles. In June 2013, Lauren won the renowned Gold Award at Graduate Fashion Week and received the opportunity to design a collection for the George G21 Talent range. Later that year, Lauren won the Graduate of the Year award at the Scottish Fashion Awards.
Since then Lauren has embarked on a new venture and has been developing her skills in hand-embroidery and print design. Heavily inspired by the patterns and colours of the 1970’s, Lauren now creates one-of-a-kind embroidered fabric pieces from her studio in Edinburgh. Each piece begins as a painting and is finished with stitch and as many embellishments that will fit!
