About Lauren Reid
Lauren Reid is a 21-year-old painter from White Plains, NY. She is currently pursuing a dual major in Art and Psychology at Ithaca College. While her artwork ranges from charcoal drawings to pastel drawings, her primary medium is oil painting. Lauren’s paintings serve as a vehicle for social change by expressing emotion and capturing the beauty of the human experience. Lauren wants to rewrite the backstory of the struggle of life’s hardships instead of the hardships writing the backstory through the development of pieces that involve people reflecting on emotions and coping with troubles. Creating art has influenced her life by giving her a sense of who she is and becoming. She dreams of becoming an art therapist whose private practice will serve as both a liberation and an outlet for expression.
