For the next few weeks, the ladies of Happy Happy Art Collective will be sharing a recap of their adventures over the last year since the group's inception. This is gonna be fun!

Next we have Lauren. (You may have noticed she is now Lauren Lowen! It sounds like a comic book name: Lois Lane. Peter Parker. Lauren Lowen)

Wow, has it only been a year? I feel like we have packed SO much into the last 12 months. For me, that meant leaving my full time job in January 2014, getting married this past September, and signing with an agent!

I've had a chance to work on some great projects, from kid's magazines to album art. I went to Surtex and was ecstatic to meet so many fellow artists and new clients. Since the show, I have licensed art with companies such as Hallmark, Demdaco, and Mpix. 

in the fall I was approached by the wonderful Jennifer Nelson about representation. I joined Jennifer Nelson Artists in early 2015 along with four other talented ladies: Victoria Johnson, Monika Forsberg, Bee Brown, and Jennifer Orkin Lewis (August Wren). In the short time I have joined forces with the agency, I've been blown away by the new opportunities coming my way and am extremely grateful Jennifer thought I was worth representing. Wish I could tell you about some of the exciting things we are working on, but you'll just have to wait (ugh, I hate waiting!). Below you can see a small screen grab of the website. Check it out here to meet everyone!

Of course, let's not forget how fun it was to work on the Happy Happy Alphabet. Below are my personal favorites of the ones I did.

The adventure continues! I will be at Surtex this year not far from the Happy Happy booth, and I am giddy to say that my husband and I are moving outside of Nashville to our new house! We can't wait to get settled in and let the dog sniff all the 193,682 smells I'm sure she'll find upon arrival.

Hope your year is starting off HAPPY HAPPY!
