Lauryn was born in 1983 in North Carolina, but has spent most of her life growing up in New Jersey, where she currently resides. Art has always been an integral part of life to her- she has been painting and drawing for as long as she can remember.  She studied Visual Arts and graduated with a B.F.A. from the competitive Mason Gross School of the Arts at Rutgers University in 2005, and New York City. She established The Live Painter in 2018, offering a specialty service of live event painting commissions and performances. Now in 2021, Lauryn has established The Live Painter Gallery, linking the local community to contemporary art.
Lauryn lives in Lawrenceville with her husband, two boys, and two cats.
