About the Illustrator

Lauren Elise Reeves works in multi-media, ranging from digital media to charcoal, ink and colored pencils. Her works often includes fantastical and natural icons surrounded in dark and haunting places, allowing for creatures to maintain a symbolic sense of futility and yet being able to possess a quality of light that seems to radiate from within the central core of the narrative within which the creatures stir. Finding light being created in unexpected places and by creatures who have no great status in the world, her work elevates these humble beings, often representing her experiences and personas, giving them the jobs of God’s apprentices.

It's been quite a journey, and every year seems like a completely new and exciting adventure. This year I was accepted into two juried shows called "Made in the South," one in Charleston and one in Savannah. It was amazing meeting so many people with their sweet stories about their pet dogs and pet squirrels. I'm so glad I was able to be a part of this show and want to meet you all again next year!

While the studio has been busy here, I've also been busy doing a lot of rendering work at Allison Ramsey Architects. It's been a great experience gettin...
