Lauren Kuhn grew up in the small, seaside town of Duxbury where her mother, especially, always encouraged and supported her early interest in the arts. After graduating from Villanova University, she worked in education and graphic design before choosing to pursue the path of a full-time fine artist in 2013. Now living in Emmaus, PA, Lauren is a resident artist at The Banana Factory in nearby Bethlehem. She also serves as the vice president of the Emmaus Arts Commission, a group that focuses on developing art events and enhancing an appreciation of the arts in the community. For the majority of her work, she specializes in creating custom, commissioned oil paintings that offer opportunities to capture a 'moment' in lieu of a basic likeness. In 2016, Lauren was named an Art Pop artist by Art Pop Street Gallery and The Banana Factory, and she was excited to represent emerging and professional artists from the state of Pennsylvania in the 2017 Art of the State Exhibit at The State Museum in Harrisburg. Lauren regularly shows her paintings in national juried shows, competes in Plein Air Festivals across Pennsylvania, and seeks opportunities to use her art to help those in her community. In Emmaus, you can see her custom mural work in person at Turn the Page (via a series of murals and a selection of paintings) and Lets Play Books (she painted the third floor stairwell). She also sells her non-commissioned paintings online through DailyPaintworks.com.
