Today we are excited to introduce you to Lauren Nash of Transient Art!
From Lauren: “Hi there! I’m Lauren. I’m a homebody who loves to draw and paint fine artworks, delve into anything crafty, including making videos as a YouTube Partner, with plenty of sewing thrown into the mix. I have 3 children, Jude, Jacob, and Lyla, and a husband, Jonathan, whom I love spending every moment with living in Las Vegas, NV. I’m self-taught in many ways and love adding or changing up a pattern or recipe to make it my own. I love hand sewing tiny little things, vintage pieces, sweet touches, and details, details! I miss my Colorado Rocky Mountains and find my inspiration in nature. I have a fondness for rabbits and ravens, sweet strawberries, peachy sugar pinks and minty colors. I believe in making time for a good bubble bath and squeezing in a chocolate break. My hope is to bring happiness to others and to brighten their day with my designs and creations You can visit me at Transient Art to read my blogs and see what’s new in my day.”
Lauren’s love of little creatures is easy to see in all of her fabric lines. From sweet bunnies to playful squirrels and crows, Lauren’s designs are infused with joyful energy and charm.
Lauren is most known for her sweet springtime designs (the tutorial for this adorable Bunny Bib can be found on her BLOG), however, she has proved she has so much more up her sleeve!
Her latest collection, Calico Crow, has a lovely Autumn vibe with burnt orange, toasty browns, and rustic reds and yellows hues.
In order to get to know Lauren better, we gave her a list of words in alphabetical order to which she could give any reply that came to mind. Enjoy this fun and refreshing look at life from Lauren’s unique perspective!
