Not only is that my favorite color, but that’s how us Texans say “Hello”! Yee-Haw! I was born and raised in the great state of Texas! I’ve lived in Floresville, San Antonio, Corpus Christi, and now the Big Ole’ DFW.
My first name is Lawren, yes with a double-u! You need a weird name for a weird kid! Rose is my middle name, not my last name, and it’s a family name!
I grew up on a 75 acre farm with all sorts of animals.My younger days were spent running around outside barefoot, I’ve had probably way more sticker burrs in my feet than you can count. I went to East Central High School where I had the best art teachers alive! I applied for only 1 college and got accepted – Texas A&M University in Corpus Christi. I decided to major in Computer Science and minor in Art. The choice was obvious! Computer nerds made more money! So if ya can’t be one you outta marry one! (Yup, this is how I met my husband)
About a year and a half in I had a break down and decided to make the switch. Art was in my blood and I could no longer deny it! My favorite class was Drawing class, and I’m sure my lungs are black from all the charcoal. After taking the intro drawing course I skipped ahead to advanced drawing, I was just that good! Teachers pet! I was 2 semesters away from graduating when I took my first photography course… and I only took it because it was required. I’ll admit, using scissors to cut the film in the dark room was the scariest part! The advanced photography class I focused on photographing overpasses and highways. I still don’t quite understand what it is about those gigantic structures.
