Lauren Raye Snow is an artist and designer from South Texas. Her work explores uncanny, ambivalent visions, both dreadful and cathartic.
She currently serves as Art Director for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA). In 2020, she led their brand redesign, and has art directed each Nebula Conference since (and one Worldcon for good measure). In 2023, her work earned her a spot as a finalist in the World Fantasy Awards.
She is inspired by the Symbolists and the Pre-Raphaelites, by the Catholic and Indigenous religious icons of her native South Texas, and by works of terror and beauty in literature, myth, and music.
You can find Lauren sleeping in a moss-covered, hollowed-out log on the outskirts of a field upon which sits a crumbling, haunted manor house. Actually, you can’t find her there — she’s disappeared. You can try Twitter and Instagram, but no guarantees.
