My name is Lauren Mattson. I'm a native of Minnesota, and currently live in Burbank, CA.  I'm interested in visual development for animation, and illustration for children's books.

One of my specific interests is character design for TV and feature film. I use graphite, ink, markers, gouache, watercolor, oils, and digital mediums to explore characters and shape language.

I also love the outdoors! My life-long hobbies include horseback riding, hiking, camping, and back country backpacking.

I've done illustration for the Minnesota Zoo, and take freelance clients with projects from children's books, to animation/video production.
