LAURYN BARNES - The woman behind the brand
Lauryn is the artist, designer + owner behind the brand LAURYN INK ODDITIES. Lauryn is a self taught artist, who prefers to work in ink and acrylic as her medium. In the summer of 2017, she made the decision to start her own business and create her own brand, that day would ultimately be the start of a wonderful, crazy journey.
Starting from humble beginnings on Instagram, to now showcasing her work at events such as the ODDITIES FLEA MARKET in Los Angeles, and the DAPPER DAY EXPO at the DISNEYLAND HOTEL in Anaheim, CA. Lauryn has created freelance custom artwork for countless people and inspired others with her characters.
Lauryn's ink & acrylic illustrations are portraits of magical and ethereal women. They are inspired by her love for all things strange, beautiful, mysterious and macabre. Each character has a beating heart & a tale to tell. Her characters are born of folklore, mysticism and of course, a bit of pinup flare.
Lauryn lives in a cozy corner of California with her husband of 7 years and their 3 kiddos. There you can often find her in her natural habitat, caught in a fog of coffee, paint brushes and art sketches.
