The Colour Study series was created by Lauren Tausend as a way to explore colour and texture through yarn play. Inspired by walks around her local area noticing patterns, textures and colours in the trees, rocks, and grasslands along Darebin Creek.

About the Artist - Lauren Tausend
My focus is on the process of story-telling through traditionally craft based practices. Craft and predominantly knitting play a huge part in my connection to family and home, and is the inspiration for my exploration of textiles. I love the accessibility of craft and my goal is to push those ideas to a place which intersects with art and design.

Completing a degree in Textile Design at RMIT in 2015 and having experiences working in fashion, homewares, knitwear, screen printing and costume design, my work has an organic and playful approach with a strong connection to the handmade. Exploring texture, shape and colour through fibre and illustration.

Having exhibited my first solo show 'Migration' in 2020 at Off The Kerb Gallery with a collection of knitting paintings, I’m excited to pursue this idea to places bigger and fuzzier than before. Stay tuned!

Growing up in country Victoria, I'm always desperate to escape the city and return to the bush and the coast. Taking inspiration from the texture and movement of the landscape and our interactions within that space.

I'm available for textile commissions, collaborations, craft projects and freelance opportunities. If you're like to work together or just say hi please send me an email at hello@laurentausend.com.
