Euterpe-The-Egret's Profile Picture
Euterpe-The-Egret
Lauren Crest
Artist | Professional | Other
United States
I am a freelance illustrator currently based in Utah. I am passionate about creating illustrations that possess and radiate with an aura and bewitchment of their own; bringing them to life and allowing them to exist more fully off the page. My work is inspired by small aspects of magic in fairy tales in daily life, by the emotions and desires that are masked and left unspoken, and from my massively unending consumption of books. My illustrations are created to make you feel, to pause from your average routine, and to consider a new, different way of thinking.

I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2 Dimensional Studies at Weber State University in Ogden, Utah. When I’m not working on commissioned work I am juggling a variety of personal illustration and story projects. In the off chance I’m not working on art, I am usually found outside with my husband and cat either looking for bees, bones, or both.

As you may or may not have noticed, I tend do to infrequent and bulk uploads to this DA account. I love DA but am not great at visiting here and am even worse at remembering to keep things up to date. To keep better in touch with what is happening with me and my art follow me on facebook at facebook.com/laurencrestillustration. There you will be updated on blog posts, new and events, new work, and more. I'm also a lot easier to message there.

I apologize but I would not recommend my University for their art school. I went to that University because all of their medical programs were either the best in the state or within the  top 10 in the US. After I changed my mind on pursuing a nursing degree I decided to pursue my passion for Art.  I had to choose between transferring and having to take over 30 more credits (not to mention making up credits that wouldn't transfer) or to just finish the remaining 18 or so at my University. I choose to stay. It was an adequate education but it wasn't great. 

On a slight side note: while I didn't really find a lot of constructive critique for most of my classes, I think personal growth in art is more based on determination and self education of an artist than a great school. Don't search for an expensive university where you won't be able to pay off your student loans. I know people who are in $50,000-200,000 worth of debt where as I'm getting out of it at $27,000. Art is a hard career to get a job in. If you can't make a living off of it and pay off your loan money then an extremely expensive degree isn't worth it.

I've read articles that state that a degree at Yale only gives the graduates a one year step up from graduates from other colleges before they are all equaled out. 

So that is just something to keep in mind.

If you don't mind, we could have tea parties and imitate slightly drunk, tipsy/portly middle-aged men with beer bellies!)

P.P.S. :happybounce: Sorry if that's a bit overwhelming...`(o////o) Also, sorry for the late welcome! I lost the coding and had to spend another 2 hours rewriting it...Not to mention the system rejected the first speech as spam 'cuz it was 7 paragraphs. Hmmph! *scandalized fanning hand motions*
