Hi there! I’m Laurén.


I’m a self-taught artist who used to be a corporate publicist. 

In 2017, out of complete exasperation and in desperate need of a creative outlet, I started painting leather… and never stopped. My projects soon took over the spare bedroom, my closet space, and eventually, thankfully, my career path. 

I like to create one-of-a-kind pieces that add color, whimsy and interest to everyday leather items. Everything you see here is hand-painted by me with the goal of transforming your beloved, or even forgotten, items into functional art. 

I take on custom projects big and small, from bags and jackets, to full service branded activations and VIP gifting.

Follow along with my in-progress pieces & life in Venice Beach, California on Instagram and TikTok, see my professional side over on LinkedIn and shop on Etsy.
