La Petite Gallerie

An intimate gallery celebrating fine local art

Early on, Lauren discovered two passions in her life. While her left brain loved science, her right brain wanted to create. She received her degree in Fine Arts, then moved on to a rewarding career as a Registered Nurse. Now retired, she pursues her love of painting full time.

Lauren’s work has evolved into a fast and furious, bold and colorful, impressionistic style. She will often let the painting find its own composition.

These days, the low country is at her door step, begging to be put on canvas. You may find her painting in the sunshine reflecting off the marsh or in her home studio. The people, landscape, architecture and culture of the south are her subjects.

You will be drawn in when viewing one of her works, and may just decide to bring a piece of the low country home with you.

Her creations are on display at The Society of Bluffton Artists, LaPetite Gallerie, and The Art League of Hilton Head. You can also find her on Facebook @ ColoredCanvas, or contact her directly at 843-422-3685 or
