About Lauren Packard

I am a mixed-media artist living in Brooklyn, NY with my partner and two cats. I teach elementary art to NYC public school kids and love being able to create every day. A lot of my work has to do with exploring the push-pull of everyday dichotomies through the use of unexpected color, line, texture... Follow me on Instagram: @ellepackard

Hi Lauren, Just dropping you a note to say that your artwork for the fabric challenge is really fun and interesting, but for this contest, they need to be in the form of a repeating pattern to be usable. there may be time for you to set them up properly before voting starts, if you are quick. Best of luck!
