Lauren Mullinder is an illustrator based in Adelaide, South Australia. With a degree in colouring (a.k.a. Visual Communication with a specialisation in illustration), Lauren worked as a graphic designer and creative in the health, graphic design and advertising industries, before setting out on her own as a full-time freelance illustrator.
Specialising in the education and entertainment industries, Lauren's passion is working with people to tell stories through fun and engaging illustrations.
After illustrating her first picture book, which came out in early 2017, she discovered her love of interacting and engaging with children through presentations and workshops, and teaching them a love of self-expression through art.
When she's not working or talking about illustration, Lauren loves to get outside and spend time in nature - from hiking, to gardening and as an enthusiastic volunteer at the Adelaide Botanic Gardens Little Sprouts Kitchen garden program.
Lauren is currently working on two new picture books that are due for launch in late 2018.
