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

After a thrilling ten years managing various educational toys stores and books stores, she taught herself the major computer design applications and 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 creating animation, comic books, character design and figurative sculpture in addition to digital and traditional illustration and web design/graphics.

Lauren was responsible for designing and building the site.

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