Lauren Parker Lasater is an American painter and photographer from Nashville, Tennessee. Lauren is a B.A graduate from Lake Forest College, and has exhibited her works since 2003. Her work focuses on exotic nature and landscapes through the mediums of painting and photography. She has greatly expanded her art portfolio by exploring the world of art through her extensive travels of the globe. The examination of cross-cultural studies is very important to her; the more she travels, the more she is able to observe and break cultural stereotypes. These world travels have allowed Lauren to open her eyes and mind to be able to develop her own distinct, impressionistic, abstract style.
