"Two simple materials—paper and glue—and a simple technique used to transform paper into dimensional arrwork"
Lauren Schwartz was born in sunny Miami but grew up in the Garden State. She’s always been a bit of a “nerdy creative”, completing a BA in Economics from NYU in 1990, followed up by a BFA in Graphic Design from Rhode Island School of Design in 1995. She’s built a career out of using both sides of her brain by working as both a designer and a programmer; and is currently Partner & Creative Director at Outside the Box Interactive in Jersey City. After working in the digital realm for 20-plus years, she’s decided to get creative in the physical realm again by working with her hands and tangible media. Lauren’s three-dimensional paper creations are a physical manifestation of her mathematical mind meeting her imaginative inner child, who just wants to create beautiful things for others to enjoy.
