Lauren Simpson was born and raised in Homer into a four-generation homesteading family. Inspired from a young age to capture Alaska’s stunning landscape and wildlife on canvas, she has always used painting as a creative outlet to express her passion for beauty and excellence.
Lauren strives to tell her story through each painting. Some tell of her rich heritage in the land, others of overcoming adversity, creating stillness, or standing in awe of the mountains.
Lauren joined our gallery in December and her new display includes beautiful giclee fine art paper prints, oil or acrylic on canvas originals, greeting cards, and vinyl stickers. She also paints with watercolors.
Ptarmigan Arts will not hold extended First Friday hours in January and will be closed on Sundays through January for a gallery refurbishment project. So, during the month of January, we are open Monday – Saturday, 11 am – 5 pm. All are invited to view Lauren’s artwork and enjoy her wonderful Alaskan paintings.
