Lauren Bullock was born in Boston, Massachusetts but spent most of her life in Georgia where her interest in the arts developed from an early age. Her formal studies in textiles began at the Rhode Island School of Art and Design’s Pre College Program where she first studied pattern screen printing. She also traveled to Japan to study cultural techniques such as dye resist with rice paste, paper spinning and weaving. Currently, she is pursuing a Master of Fine Arts degree at the University of Georgia. Her creative work concerns ecofriendly art and design by constructing fabric from discarded materials, employing multiple strategies such as weaving, sewing, soft sculpture along with other contemporary and traditional techniques in order to give used objects a new purpose or identity.
