illuminated by the setting sun. Stained glass, mosaic gold, Murano millefiori (patterned glass beads), pottery, and even decorative fabric were all used in specific areas to bring out the design. Pleasantly, 2015 has been an exciting year for Lauren. Her work was well received last summer at a showing at the Wellesley Free Library and as a feature on WCVB's Chronicle on Channel 5. She is currently at work creating a one-of-a-kind wall mirror with 3D designs. Lauren is also showcasing a collection of her works at the Weston Public Library for eight weeks. This free exhibit will be on display through December 31 of this year. In addition, Tenacre Country Day School in Wellesley has invited Lauren to be an artist-in-residence in fall of 2016. The goal of this prestigious enrich- ment program is to inspire Tenacre's budding young artists to embrace their talents, curiosity, and passion for art. Lauren's mosaic art will be displayed for several weeks in the Tenacre Art Gallery, and she will also work one-on-one with the elementary school students on a mosaic project, sharing her expertise, experience, and passion as an artist. As my tour of her studio was coming to a close, I asked her what the best thing is about her work. Lauren smiled and replied, "I would say working on a piece for a client and seeing their reaction as I show it to them and how happy it makes them."
