About lauren florence
With a background in silk dyeing, Oklahoma City based artist, Lauren Florence turned to acrylics and canvas after the birth of her son. With the same vibrant colors she used on silk, her paintings now have form in vibrant, realistic expressionism. Her subject matter is inspired by a deep love of the people and wildlife of Oklahoma and the American West.
Lauren has a BFA in Textile Design from the University of Kansas, 1994
She studied painting with artist, Bert Seabourn, at Oklahoma Contemporary 2013 - 2018. She now teaches workshops a couple times a year and teaches mini workshops at local businesses through Allied Arts in Oklahoma City.
