On Butterflies of Wisdom today, Best-Selling Author, Win C welcomes Lauren Curtis. Lauren graduated with a BFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University, in 1988.   She’s been creating ever since and now, as a full-time artist enjoys working in a variety of media, including oils collage, pen & ink, watercolor and photography. The artist is happiest when creating pieces that represent her love of nature,  wildlife, travel and spiritual subject matter.  The  symbolism  and mythology of ancient cultures are fused with the symbols from modern -day , natural spiritual practices, to form a unique and eclectic style.  These images are often portrayed through the woman’s perspective,  showing the importance of “The Feminine” , which is sometimes over-looked.   Travel is another  major  influence in Lauren’s work and the pieces, usually photographs, created from these journeys helps the artist  to convey the beauty  found in diversity, as well as in the similarities, that run through various cultural belief-systems. Lauren has had artwork and poetry published by  greeting card and crafter companies,  magazines, children’s books  and historical organizations, including the Middlesex County Cultural & Heritage Commission.   One of her pieces was selected for the  permanent collection of the Joyce Kilmer Library in central NJ.  Her  work has been displayed in private collections, healthcare centers and galleries and was selected for a solo exhibit at Johnson &Johnson World Headquarters, July-August, 2009. She was a featured artist on the Science Channel‘s TV show Oddities (2011-2012), was also featured on Germany’s TAFF TV (2015), several NJ/NYC cable /YouTube TV shows and has done radio interviews as well.   Lauren has participated in over 100 solo,  group & juried exhibitions,  won multiple awards and is a member of  NJ Arts organizations.  Her artwork has been sold throughout the US and abroad and she exhibits her work monthly in gallery shows,  art fests and cultural events.  To keep updated on  Lauren’s art schedule, please visit  where you can also sign her email list.
