Lauren VanArman is the owner of Time Zone Resource, LLC. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Supervision & Management with a minor in art. Her artistic training also includes study at Dreyfoos School of the Arts and an Industrial Drafting Certificate with a focus on 3D computer modeling. Areas of academic study include photography, life drawing, oil, watercolor, acrylic painting, pastel, printmaking, jewelry-design, 3D design, and blueprint drafting. She has been making wire jewelry for over 20 years and now fashions it into other 3D forms, namely insects. 

Lauren has worked as a muralist, picture framer, calligrapher, sign painter, architectural and industrial designer, furniture/art/antique restorer, decorative painter, performance painter, in a bronze studio, in clothing design and fashion show organization. Inspiration for her artwork comes mostly from nature and the environment she is working in.

Her art has been exhibited at Jazz On J Street, Bohemia AG, Northwood, Armory Art Center, Arthur R. Marshal Loxahatchee Wildlife Refuge Center, Red Tapas Restaurant, Cabo Flats, PBSC Library, PBSC Art Gallery, Our Savior Lutheran Church, St. Catherine Greek Church, Dreyfoos SOA, South Florida Fair, JFK Hospital, private residences, and more. She continues to be actively in involved in providing artistic services for diverse charitable organizations.

This show is inspired by Lauren VanArman’s love of the amazing architectural structures found in nature. Growing up with two biologist parents has influenced her art and encouraged an expression of nature using a variety of wire jewelry and beading methods. Her background in architectural and mechanical drafting provides a way to plan and execute intricate insect structures in 3D forms. By integrating her understanding of their balanced proportions and colors with jewelry techniques she aims to add aesthetic value and draw awareness to the beauty of this part of the animal kingdom.
