Lauren Pierre is a writer, illustrator and colorist passionate about creating books for young readers. She aims to tell sensitive, heartfelt stories about friendship, family, and faith that feel familiar, yet are executed in a fresh, modern way.
Lauren has happy childhood memories of running in the backyard with her dad and siblings, learning about God and the world around her, making arts & crafts with her mom, going on imagined adventures with her stuffed animals, and trying to figure out how to successfully jump into her favorite books and cartoons. These days she still enjoys learning new things and makes plenty of art, but has grown weary of stomping on books and crashing into TV screens. She decided that becoming an author-illustrator of children’s books would be a much better-- and far less painful-- use of her time!
Lauren lives in Florida with her family, where she entertains the local wildlife that like to come up to her window, pursues a degree in Liberal Arts, and never says no to a Disney vacation.
She has worked on a variety of creative projects over the years, ranging from self-published children's books to short comics, and is represented by Britt Siess Creative Management.
You can follow her on Twitter, where she frequently shares art and gushes about pop culture.
