Lauren has been at Moss Galleries since May, after completing her MFA at Maine College of Art. Previously, she was the director of an artist-owned gallery in New Orleans where she learned the art of southern hospitality and embraced the city's laissez-les-bons-temps-rouler attitude.

Lauren loves paintings (both making them and looking at them) and Maine, a painting mecca!
