biography

Lauren Raye Snow is an artist and designer from South Texas. Her work explores uncanny, ambivalent visions, both dreadful and cathartic.
 
Lauren’s work has been nominated for numerous awards, including the Chesley Awards and the World Fantasy Awards. She’s also known for her work as Art Director for the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association (SFWA), leading their official brand redesign in 2020. 
 
She is inspired by the Symbolists and the Pre-Raphaelites, by the Catholic and Indigenous 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.
