Laurén Brady is a visual artist living in Charlotte, Michigan. She holds an MFA in Studio Art from Michigan State University and a BS in Studio Art from Indiana Wesleyan University. Her paintings explore landscape, memory, and responding to current environments through expressive mark-making and bold use of color. Captured with a sense of immediacy and compulsion, her paintings serve as entries to an on-going investigation of the ways we interact, impact, and hold onto places we pass through.
Laurén’s work has been included in several solo, small group, and national juried exhibitions, and she has been awarded artist residencies with Golden Apple Studios, The Sable Project, and La Macina di San Cresci. She is currently preparing for two solo shows this year, one at Customs House Museum & Cultural Center in Clarksville, TN, and The Schmidt Art Center at Southwestern Illinois College. She has been interviewed by Visionary Art Collective and was featured in CandyFloss Magazine as well as numerous online art blogs. Laurén teaches in the Foundations Area at Michigan State University.
