Hi! My name is Lauren Elizabeth and I am an over-the-top animal lover with a passion for art. I have been painting my whole life. I always enjoyed making any type of art but wasn't sure if I'd ever be able to make a living at it. Working in hospitality then marketing, I really felt like something was missing. I wanted more out of life. I wanted to surround myself with art, creativity and definitely animals. After painting a portrait of my fur-baby Frank, a lightbulb went off in my head. On my 28th birthday in 2013, I grew up the courage to launch my business "Off The Wall Paintings" and opened my Etsy shop and website. It has been a whirlwind of pet portraits, abstracts, and nursery paintings ever since. It is the best feeling in the world to get to do what you love every day. I have enjoyed every painting and every minute of it! The feeling I get when a customer sees their painting for the first time, is just indescribable. I feel so honored to be able to capture their best friend's personality on canvas for them to cherish for a lifetime. It means the world to me. I even get to paint pet portraits for an awesome online pet retailer, Chewy.com! Atlanta Magazine featured me in there Aug 2015 Special Pets Edition! Check out the article here. Thank you for your support and encouragement throughout my journey. I can't wait to see where life takes me next.
A few of my favorite things:
Creating. Painting. Pushing the limits of what I can do.
Beach. Ocean. Sand. Sun.
Any and all animals!
Listening to music while I paint.
