Painting / Design
Lauren Metzger has used various forms of art as an outlet for self expression throughout her life. Originally from Chicago, IL, Lauren gained her formal training from the Parsons School of Design in NYC. Since 1993 she has worked as a professional graphic designer while always painting on the side to maintain a certain balance in her life. It was also in 1993 that she moved to Telluride, surrounding herself with the beauty and serenity of the town, allowing her self expression to blossom. In the fall of 2012 Lauren decided to devote more time to her passion, painting, and started Moon Dog Portraits. Graphic design, painting portraits and her dog BG keep her busy while Telluride continues to inspire her to constantly try new and exciting mediums of expression.
Lauren’s class was wonderful and informative!
Lauren clarified techniques that had been frustrating me for months. She was an extremely knowledgeable and really fun instructor!
