Lauren Raye Snow is an illustrator and fine artist currently located in South Texas. Through her art, she explores intangible, uncanny visions and feelings that are ill described in language – and the anxiety that this obscurity can cause.
Her work lingers on the liminal, inner moments of personal transformation of fear into power. Lauren believes art-making is change-making, and that by viewing and reflecting on images of this transformation, we can confront unknown possibilities.
She is inspired by the Symbolists and the Pre-Raphaelites, by the Catholic and Indigenous religious icons of her native South Texas, as well as works of horror, romance and beauty in literature and music.
