Diving is one of my biggest passions! Breathing underwater is exhilarating and the colors and creatures below the water are incredible. I've had some of my favorite adventures underwater or on a dive trip. I spent a week with my best friend on a live aboard in Belize. I completed my Divemaster course in Tenerife and saw a rays, loads of Cuttlefish and even a Mola Mola. The majority of our planet is covered in water and I intend to explore it! So this gift guide is dedicated to those who intend to explore it with me. Whether you're above or below the sea, there's a gift for you. I love this new Girls That Scuba tote and that part of the proceeds go to Plastic Ocean. Also, I am obsessed with sharks and my best friend is too. The fact that I can adopt one in her name is absolutely amazing! What are you wishing for for Christmas?

Happy Mother's Day!

Travel, ProjectsLauren EngelComment

Traveling is such an important part of my life and I love sharing it with the people who are important to me! Last September my mom and I did a 10 day road trip around Ireland. It was so much fun and I loved showing her this country that is so special to me! I meant to post this video ages ago but figured what a better time than Mother's Day as a way to relive our trip together.

I also wanted to wish a very happy Mother's Day to some of the moms I had the pleasure of illustrating over the past few months!

Custom paintings from Christmas

ProjectsLauren EngelComment

Christmas is my busiest time of year for custom paintings. They are the perfect unique gift to commemorate a trip, for a friend who was recently married or your parents who always wanted a nice family portrait. I love working with clients to turn their memories into beautiful watercolor paintings. Now that the holidays are over and gifts have been given, I'm excited to share with you a few of my favorites from this past Christmas.

Workshop with Andy Evansen

ProjectsLauren EngelComment

Since I travel so much I’ve been wanting to do more landscape and plein air paintings however I had always struggled with them. I’m always interested in trying new styles and techniques and one of my favorite ways to do that is through classes and workshops. Last Fall I flew to Minnesota for a workshop with Andy Evansen.  Andy is one of my favorite watercolor painters and I really love the way he captures light and the essence of a location. 

It was a week long workshop in Andy’s studio in Hastings, Minnesota. We worked off of pictures we brought and most of mine were from my travel to South America. Here are a few of my favorites -
