Plants and flowers are a way of life for the Austin, Texas-based artist. Among her favorites? “All the old-fashioned heirloom flowers make my heart sing,” she says. “Peonies, hydrangeas, lilacs, and, of course, damask roses.”
“I walk into our studio and smell and see rows and rows of watering cans bursting with cream roses and hydrangeas,” Lauren says. “Fragrant buckets of lilacs and peonies lining the studio walls in early June are pure ecstasy.”
Growing in pots, mounted on boards and framed, and even tucked among the pages of storybooks—petals, leaves, and stems are everywhere in her home and studio, above.
