A Mother/Daughter team, Lauren’s Cows is an award winning artwork and homeware business renowned for our characterful portraits of cows.
Lauren’s Cows was founded in 2012 off the back of a single painting. A painting of a cow. Since then Lauren’s Cows has grown and grown, with our contemporary cow art prints and paintings hanging on walls worldwide.
Accompanied by our range of top quality homeware we are dedicated to creating artwork to make you smile! If you are a cow lover, we hope you enjoy meeting the Lauren’s Cows herd members, if you are not- you will be by the time you leave!
The Artist behind the cows
A self taught artist, Lauren has always had a passion for the arts. Originally training as an actress Lauren moved from the family home in Yorkshire to London to pursue her career as an actress. Finding time to kill between acting jobs and waitressing shifts, Lauren began to pick up her art again, something she hadn’t visited since school. Growing tired of city life Lauren decided her little London flat needed a touch of her country roots. What better view than a curious cow peering in on her kitchen table? It was when framing this one-off painting that her career path took a serious change! The framer in North Yorkshire was so taken by the characterful cow, that he offered to host an exhibition for Lauren if she agreed to paint twenty more of her beautiful beasts! The response and enthusiasm that this debut exhibition generated gave Lauren the confidence to launch her art business and brand and Lauren’s Cows was born.
Lauren has now made her home in the historical city of York and paints Cows full time from her studio.
“For me it’s all about the personality. Cows have such a curious personality and inquisitive nature that I just love. If I’m not in the studio you’ll find me gallivanting around the fields getting dirty with the cows. It’s all very well buying a piece of art to match your sofa but when it’s something that makes you smile day after day, that’s priceless.”
Perfecting a balance of character and colour while remaining true to the breed, Lauren has made a name for herself as ‘The Cow Owner’s Cow Artist and now creates bespoke commissioned artworks for herdsmen across the country.
