About Lauren

I was born in Utah in 1959. I remember every summer taking family vacations in the mountains along the Wasatch Front, camping, fishing, and hiking.

In my early 20s I joined the Army for three years. I wasn’t suited to army life but I have the highest respect and admiration for those in the military. With my honorable discharge I decided to stay in North Carolina where I ended up staying for eleven years.

I returned to Utah in 1994 and have been working in the illustration, graphic design, and advertising fields ever since.

In 2014 my wife and I moved to a nice little retirement community in Coarsegold, California, just south of Yosemite National Forest (although I’m far from retirement).
