Hey there! My name’s Lauren.
I’m a Fine Arts major here at Kent.
The one thing you really need to know about me that defines me is that I love anything to do with horror/Halloween, and most of the time that’s what fuels my creativity.
And as far as what I want to do with my life, ever since around freshman year of high school I knew that I wanted to become a special effects make-up artist/prop-maker for horror movies and haunted houses. Mainly because it combined horror and art, my two favorite things.
And that’s how I ended up here to further my knowledge and sharpen my art abilities before (hopefully) heading to make-up school to make buckets of fake blood and cool latex prosthetics.
And one more thing just for fun, there’s another picture below of myself and one of my most favorite people ever, Bobby Calabrese. He’s the guitarist of my favorite band, Calabrese. It really wouldn’t be an “About” page for me without putting a little tidbit of this band in it because of how supportive they’ve been of my art. From posting it all over their websites and social media to signing and complimenting it at shows.
One of my biggest inspirations and I, right here:
