Lauren Adams is a fabulous artist from Fairmont, West Virginia with whom I had the great pleasure of working during a recent design job in San Francisco. I instantly fell in love with her abstract work and the way she combines texture and colors in such a beautiful and understated way. When my client stated she wanted her dining room to be “clean and modern” but, of course, simultaneously warm and inviting… I just knew featuring Lauren’s work was the answer (dining room below).
To be honest, I can’t remember how I originally came across Lauren’s work. But when I reached out to her, she was incredibly approachable and excited to work with me on the project. Lauren even raced to the gallery that was having an exhibition of her work to pick-up and ship the piece in time for my installation!
Apparently, I’m not the only one catching on to Lauren’s talent. In fact, she was featured in West Elm‘s 2012 Summer catalog and she has been featured in many exhibitions including her own solo exhibition at The Slingluff Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, The Redbrick Gallery in Martinsburg, WV and Annex Gallery in Charleston, WV.
I can’t wait to watch Lauren’s career unfold and I am excited to profile her as my latest Artist Highlight. Here are 5 things that Lauren loves the most…
