As a self-taught painter, Lauren was inspired to create an alternative to canvas art for her home. By suspending hundreds of single fiber strands, Lauren builds each Canvas With Movement® tapestry, and deepens the composition by adding multiple layers of dye, often times dipping each strand one by one. The result is a one-of-a-kind wall hanging that brings interest and texture to any space.
In 2014, Lauren shared a photo to Instagram and received an overwhelming response to her first wall hanging. The six foot wide, dip-dyed tapestry was an overnight motivator to begin offering custom fiber art to friends and family. Since then Lauren has become an expert in her art form by executing meticulous dye designs for spaces worldwide, including pieces more than 20 feet in width and 10 feet high. Lauren uses her own signature line of wool strands that are specifically spun to withstand the dyeing technique she has developed. Sourced from a small, eco-friendly ranch in Wyoming, the signature fibers are hand-spun at a local mill and shipped directly to her studio in Dallas, Texas.
Inspired by the abstract and organic dye designs of her tapestries, Lauren offers her paintings as a complement to her fiber art collections. From Canvas With Movement® fiber art, to her large-scale paintings, Lauren’s artwork is incorporated into homes, restaurants, hotels and event spaces by top interior designers around the world.
Each month, a new collection of fresh and original artwork is made available to Designers, Art Consultants and the public. Learn more about the process, inspiration and when Lauren’s next collection will be available for purchase at www.LaurenWilliamsART.com or on Instagram @LaurenWilliamsART
