My favourite commission pieces are always the ones that feature either the outline of Tasmania, a local mountain or some native flora. I am obsessed with this beautiful Island state and I love being able to share that with others.
Just like it is for us, Tasmania is a powerful influence in Lauren’s designs. As a lifelong Taswegian, the rugged, untouched beauty of her island home is evident in the designs she’s created. From the iconic peak of kunanyi/Mt Wellington, to the waves of the Tasman Sea and the native flora and fauna, a piece of Tasmania always finds a way into her work.
She’ll be keeping her day job for now, but her side hustle may soon take over. With a three month waitlist, there’s certainly a strong demand for a little Lauren-loving on a pair of Blundstones. But for Lauren, her next move is to broaden her influences—with plans to do an extended trip around Australia, offering pop up embroidery work-shops and commissions inspired by the natural beauty of the vast open spaces of this wide, brown land.
