Lauren Barger is absolutely amazing! I gave her a picture of my two dogs who are mother and daughter and she drew the most gorgeous picture. I will always treasure it. The detail she made with the shades of my yellow labs is incredible and exquisite. Lauren’s talent is unquestionably amazing, but she is also one of the nicest, kindest people I know. A joy to work with!
I cannot say enough wonderful things about Lauren Barger and her art. I was introduced to her by a friend through Instagram and immediately astounded by the range of her work – from fun digital renderings to house portraits to family sketches and incredible pet art. Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to commission works from her in all styles and mediums. She is a joy to work with, incredibly creative, and exceptional at transforming my own ill-formed ideas into masterpieces. She is funny, thoughtful, responsive, quick, and incredibly kind throughout the entire process.
Additionally, I always gift prints from her animal series to my friends at baby showers and her animal behinds are my favorite Christmas gift for co-workers to make them smile.
Lauren is one of my favorite Instagram finds ever and am thrilled to have built an online friendship with her in the process! (Check out her Coffee Draws series – always the highlight of my morning!)
Lauren has been a friend of mine since kindergarten, 1996. We grew up in a small town in rural Indiana, graduating with barely 100 people in our high school class. She has always been undeniably talented and incredibly weird in the best possible way. Her artistic talents were on full display within our small community so when she started selling her art full time I was excited to show support. I have a few prints, some stickers, and pet portraits of my late dogs that I will cherish forever. She was once a big fish in a small pond but has continued to grow and evolve in her abilities, learn new skills, and work to stand out in her craft. Now it’s clear that she’s becoming a big fish in the vast ocean of social media. Congratulations Lauren! you deserve all the success that you’ve experienced thus far, and you deserve all the success to come.
We LOVED working with Lauren! She is the utmost professional and was so friendly. She was patient with all of my questions and requests and kept us updated on how our commission was progressing. Her brilliant ideas and creativity helped our piece to be even more amazing than I ever thought possible. She captured our family perfectly and we will forever have her incredible art to remember this time in our lives. I can’t wait to, hopefully, work with her again!! Everyone should have the chance to work with her and have their own LB fine art piece!!
