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 creates unique embroidered pieces from her studio in Edinburgh. Each piece begins as a painting and is finished with stitch and as many embellishments that will fit!
In early 2017, Lauren began creating wearable embroidered pins that proved very popular! Currently working on expanding her range of accessories, Lauren’s designs are sure to bring a pop of colour and fun to your everyday.
