Lauren Francis graduated from Rhode Island School of Design with a degree in illustration, concentrating on Children's Illustration and Fantasy Illustration.

After managing various educational toys stores and books stores, she went to work for one of the top ten software companies. By day she's a web/graphic designer, by night an aspiring children's book writer/illustrator and fantasy artist with interests in animation, comic books, character design, and figurative sculpture in addition to digital and traditional illustration and web design/graphics.

Lauren currently lives in Northern California with her husband and four cats in a house that's much too small for her embarassingly huge collection of picture books.
