Lauren Saxton is a self-taught artist who lives and works in Arizona with her husband and cats. Much of her work is influenced by fairy tales, history, and nature, and she wants her work to transport the viewer to sweetly mysterious and magical places. She enjoys the pursuit of knowledge in many different fields and has formally studied classical civilizations and art history, as well as receiving her Master of Arts in Library and Information Science in 2015. She comes from a creative family and was encouraged in her artistic pursuits throughout her entire life. She found a deep connection with the pop surrealist movement and began to pursue her artwork more seriously in 2009, and has sold her work ever since both online and through galleries.
