Lauren tells us all about how she dropped everything to become a traveling full-time muralist, what it’s like to work with big sports teams like the Chicago Bulls and White Sox, interacting with the public while doing a piece, and why Chicago is one of the greatest cities in the world!
“My murals are all hand-painted freestyle, typically without any aid of a sketch, projector, or trace outline. The fact that I work completely freehand – and by myself – attracts a large audience. People are in disbelief most of the time that I do not use an aid in my work. The mural process is quite simple for me. I need paint, no rain, a blank wall, a scissor lift and time. But really, it’s that simple.”
