Lauren Douglas

Artist's Statement: 
 

I am a mixed media collage artist living in South Milwaukee, WI. I have a BA in art and art

therapy from Mount Mary College. I have exhibited in local shows including Cardinal Stritch

Mile Of Art and Mount Mary Starving Artist Show. I have shown pieces in galleries all across

the country, including Laguna Beach, CA; Longmont, CO; Raleigh, NC; Norfolk, VA; Kansas

City, MO; Overland Park, KA; Tieton, WA; Galesburg, IL; St. Louis, MO; Hudson, NY; Key West,

FL, and Smyrna, GA where I won an award for excellence. I have work in the permanent

collection at Carl Sandburg College and also have pieces for sale in several local shops in my

area.

My work is very much influenced by the writings of Thomas Wolfe. The poignancy of passing

time and the beauty, mystery and whimsy of moonlight are frequent themes. A muted,

monochrome palette and the use of old photographs (always my own or purchased at second

hand stores) and often layers of different textured papers and fabrics are my motif. I often use

words in my work to create a narrative and stimulate the imagination of the viewer.
