I’m Lauren, a creator and teacher. I have a passion for the arts and have always enjoyed creative pursuits in my different career paths. This included running Boo + Bear Designs from 2012 – 2017, where I designed and created polymer clay necklaces + homewares and also facilitated art + craft workshops.
I moved to the Mornington Peninsula in 2015, with my husband and three young daughters and have enjoyed uncovering all it has to offer in the way of arts experiences, talented creators, beautiful scenery and seriously delicious food.
It’s no wonder I ended up here, after growing up in South Gippsland and spending nearly ten years in Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula provides the best of both worlds.
With a small family, I love that the arts are so accessible on the Mornington Peninsula, with art and craft workshops run Peninsula wide, catering for children and adults of various skill levels. Lots of our galleries and exhibitions are affordable and open all year round and local creatives open their studio doors to the public, sharing their inspiration and processes.
Speaking of inspiration, it’s all on our doorstep, with calm bay beaches, rugged coast lines and idillic bush settings in our national parks. Come with me + my little family as I continue to discover all that the Mornington Peninsula has to offer.
