Lauryn Welch works and lives in Peterborough, New Hampshire. She started her undergraduate studies in painting at Rhode Island School of Design, and finished her BFA in painting and drawing at SUNY Purchase College in 2015. In her paintings and installations, she explores how color and pattern are used on the body to express or conceal one’s identity in relation to one’s environment. Her current body of work takes a split approach between body and landscape, and is heavily influenced by naturally occurring patterns. Her work has been shown across the Northeast, and has also been featured in Art New England and New American Paintings.
