— let’s get to know each other

I’ve been busy creating for my entire life.

As a kid, I spent afternoons collaging my potential futures with paint, glue and scraps from the TV Guide. I grew into a career as a branding designer and art director for various companies including Seychelles Footwear, L’Oreal Matrix, Izze, and OPI. When some of my personal projects gained attention from The New York Times and Elle Magazine, I was encouraged to focus on a brand of my own.

Nowadays I create art and design products that draw from my life experiences and the environment around me –– and as a California native, the inspiration is endless. I'm currently dedicated to #100daysofLainaTime which is a series of illustrations that I started as an exercise in self care during my mom's battle with esophageal cancer. The series is living, which means it is constantly evolving as a new piece is created every day. Follow along on instagram: @_lainalynn

 

I’m always looking for the next creative adventure. Contact me for commissions, art direction, or if you’ve just got a wild idea!

Psst... The black and white photos on this site are pretty cool, don't you think? My insanely talented pal, Jenn Emerling, shot them for me. I'm forever grateful.
