Lauren Pierre is a cartoonist and illustrator passionate about creating books for young readers, and the young-at-heart. She aims to tell sensitive, heartfelt stories about friendship, family, and faith that feel familiar, yet are executed in a fresh, modern way. Forever enamored by cartoons of the 80s and 90s, her work has a nostalgic feel, utilizing bright colors, and featuring an adorable cast of child and animal characters.
Lauren worked as a colorist on the acclaimed middle grade graphic novel TWINS by Varian Johnson and Shannon Wright (Graphix 2020), and is coloring the upcoming graphic novel CREAKY ACRES by Callista Brill and Nilah Magruder (Kokila 2021). She currently works part-time as an assistant colorist for the webcomic, Tamberlane.
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 is represented by Britt Siess of Britt Siess Creative Management.
