While attending the University of Michigan, Lauren began her freelance career working for ELLE Magazine’s resident wild woman, E. Jean Carroll.  After graduating, she spent three memorable Summers in the Colorado Rockies playing cowgirl at Cherokee Park Dude Ranch.  In addition to her American adventures, she has lived and traveled all over the world, attending schools in Tanzania and France.  Colliding with famed costume designer Colleen Atwood on the set of Public Enemies, Lauren set her sights on NYC, where she began working and attending NYU’s prestigious MFA program for design.


In 2009, Lauren launched what has since grown into an internationally successful business selling scale model miniatures.  Her creations have been sold at premiere shows and retailers throughout the country, including FAO Schwarz in Manhattan.  Other clients include Tiffany & Co., Monique Lhuillier, and the Cancer Research Institute.  Her miniature work is in private collections across the world.


When not managing her online business, she designs for stage and film.  In 2015, she helped to develop and design a secret museum in New Orleans, hidden within the passages of New Orleans’ famed parfumerie, le Nez Creux.  In 2016, her original piece, The Exile of Prospero, debuted at the National Building Museum in its Small Stories exhibit.  She is giddy as a schoolgirl over the release of her DIY book, All Dolled Up, a frothy concoction of vintage dresses,  paper dolls, and improbable locales.  She currently divides her time between New York, Michigan, and New Orleans, where she enjoys documenting her adventures.
