"Over the years I have met countless numbers of fellow artists and can honestly say that Lauren would be up there with the best of them. Her dedication is not only evident in her level of creative skill and imaginative brilliance displayed in her broad range of artistic and illustrative works but also in her dedication for the arts in general. Not only is her art truly imaginative, creative and professional but I've found her to be a very knowledgeable, pleasant and professional person to deal with. I would look to working with Lauren in the future on exhibits/collaborative projects in the future and do strongly advise anyone considering her for any of their artistic and or illustrative needs to not hesitate in doing so. I'm sure Lauren will be able to work with you in conjuring up what it is you need!" ~Shane Ryan Australian Artist
“Lauren contributed one of her illustrations, “It’s Your Day”, as the cover of our “Adventure” issue. The piece was well received by our readers and advertisers, securing her a gallery showing. She was a joy to work with, and we learned that not just the piece but also her spirit exemplifies the theme. We wish her all the best.” Co-Publishers, “Take-Care Connections Magazine” Sheila Cohill & Ken Schneider Take-Care Connections
“Lauren is simply terrific to work with. No matter what the project, she finds a way to create something that’s both interesting and unique. I know I can count on Lauren to deliver exactly what she promises - on time!” Kathy Gulrich, Art Coach smArt Business Coaching
“Lauren Curtis; The Top Tree Artist! The Highland Park Centennial Commission and the Joyce Kilmer Centennial Commission this June (2004) selected Lauren Curtis to create two large pictures of the original, famous 1904 Kilmer Oak Tree. The two pieces were specifically developed, and added spectrum-sensitive colors to the June 15 (2004) presentation at The George Street Playhouse (New Brunswick, NJ). The audience applauded Ms. Curtis’ artwork as best representing the Joyce Kilmer Magna Carta Day.” Harvey J. Brudner, Ph.D. President, Joyce Kilmer Centennial Commission
"Lauren has a National as well as an international reputation for art and mixed-media, that encapsulates the living elements of nature and the human soul. Her passion has no boundary as she shares her emotion with her audience, with the invitation to see through her eyes. From her brushstrokes to the canvas, a viewer can sense a curious pleasure of privately watching a hummingbird, rhythmically floating as it feeds in a picturesque field of colorful flowers. Or become enveloped in the emotional brooding of a Gothic print: focusing so deeply into areas between the jagged lines of an imagined, black forest, you are a present-day witness, suddenly spirited away as a captured participant in a Poetic tale unfolding on canvas- taking you as deep as your imagination dares. Whether presenting the whimsical and abstract as the common every-day-of-living , or inviting the viewer to a visually mesmerizing exploration of life's dark edges, her world is enticing and immersing. Amazingly Lauren has translated her talent of turning paintbrush, colors and canvas, into an illustrious content of delight, mystery and originality. She continues to grow, as each new presentation becomes another addition in a gifted career." Vern Ray Writer & Professional Leather-craftsman, NJ, USA
“I first met Lauren through my business, Gaia Gal Productions, when she emailed me for a catalog of my creations, back in November 2002. We began talking about working together a few months later and have done so ever since. Her artwork is lively, colorful and unique. It’s been a pleasure presenting her art in various formats - stickers, stationary and envelopes.” Laura Quintrell, Owner Gaia Gal Productions, USA
“As well as being a collector of Ms. Curtis’ original artwork, I also have hired Lauren at my video production business, Ultra Media. She has created logos and many different brochures for my company. Lauren is very professional, creative, and provides a fast turn-around. Working with Ms. Curtis on a professional level has been a pleasure.” Denise Darvon, former Owner Ultra Media Video Labs North Brunswick, NJ
“Coming from Holland and having studied architecture and art history, I am very interested what goes on in the world of art on every level. In this case, Internet was the medium to discover the art of Lauren Curtis and get inot contact with her at the meantime. Slightly I became aware of the rich variety of her work and the fact that everything she creates derives from a personal and unique style. Her attitude to the key issues of life and to the world find expression in her work. I’m not really an art collector, but Lauren gave the opportunity to become one by selling great works for very reasonable prices. I consider her work of too much interest to leave the chance to become one of her first overseas collectors.
Her work touches me deeply. I consider her work as very human, in view of the content and of the personal touch, left as fingerprints on every piece. Her work cuts through the surface of trivial life, it touches emotions and thoughts that are under the skin. Her best works are mysterious, like good modern works of art should question life and contain certain answers that can be found through the interaction of the artwork and the observer. Finally, I think Lauren has the skill and spirit to develop as a full-time artist. She has my support.” Marcel Teunissen, Private Collector The Hague - The Netherlands
“Lauren was a pleasure to work with, very professional in her approach to business arrangements. She completed a series of watercolors of our historic buildings that will soon form the basis of a new publication.” A. Aschkenes, Exec. Director Middlesex County Cultural & Heritage Commission

"The first thing Caladan Gallery considers when taking on an artist to represent is the quality of artwork, and vision that the individual artist relates to us. We found the work of Lauren Curtis to be aesthetically beautiful, as well as possessing depth and joy; which is very refreshing, and gives the viewer a natural sense of intimacy with the artist. But beyond this, is Lauren's positivity in both her artwork and communication, her appreciation in all things and her wonderful way of pure enjoyment! We are very pleased to exhibit her work." Marjorie Kaye Director, Caladan Gallery, Cambridge, MA
"I went back to the oldest e-mail I had (from Lauren) and it was dated 2014...It feels as if I've known Lauren Curtis longer than just a couples years.

5/5 stars Logo Design I had the pleasure of procuring Ms. Lauren's artistic services to help design my environmental business logo for "In A Green Minute". From my vision she was able to illustrate with color and precision my company objective, which is to show how everyone can care for the environment "in a green minute", i.e.: not littering, walk an extra block rather than drive, etc... The logo turnaround and price was very reasonable. Positive feedback from clients who see the logo has been 100% due to an excellent sense of cradle-to-grave, or her initial comprehension on through to graphic end product, my logo. I would definitely use and/or recommend Ms. Lauren's services again. Gwen Lynn, In A Green Minute Environmental Services, on March 19, 2015

5/5 stars Fine Art Collector I have a number of Lauren's pieces and they are all beautiful. I never fail to get complements on them when people visit my home, and I always love to see when Lauren finishes a new piece of art. Love all the different mediums she works in...she truly is an original, and her work never fails to have a piece of herself embedded with in! Michael Farella, private collector, on February 10, 2015
5/5 stars Book Cover Design, Graphic Design Lauren Curtis has been designing my book covers for a couple of years now, and I cannot say enough about her ability to intuit precisely the design that would serve each volume best. I absolutely love each of the covers and get many compliments on them. She's delightful to work with, and her prices are low. I wouldn't think of going to anyone else! And so, when I was in the market for a logo for Vila's Cottage Crafts, guess where I went! Oh, you bet! Got a super logo that I shall be proud to use for the rest of my life. Lauren is the absolute best! I have also bought some of her tee shirts and note cards and have been thrilled with everything I've bought. The tees are top notch--both the art and the fabric. And the cards are gorgeously distinctive. And again, her prices are amazingly low. I cannot recommend her highly enough! Her work is simply amazing!
