Lauren Kurtz

Lauren Kurtz started drawing when she was very young and was very inspired by Disney® animations. All she wanted to be was a cartoonist so she drew all kinds of cartoons she came across like Looney Tunes® and, of course, Disney.

“Later on in life I became very interested in makeup artistry and worked as a makeup artist for Sephora. Part of my job was to design face charts, this is where I learned how to apply real makeup to paper effectively. I had an idea when I was drawing at home to mix my art and real makeup together and I really liked it! I fell in love with using eye shadows and blush in all of my work.”

Lauren is very influenced by the animated drawings from her childhood and 1940s tattoo style.
