Who says it takes a lifetime to master the arts? Lauren Silvera, 3D animator, painter, activist, and soon-to-be-published author, is living proof that with enough dedication to the craft, anything is possible. At only 22, her wisdom, maturity, and experience abound, and her work has touched countless people.
Originally from Kingston, Jamaica, in her few years, Lauren’s work has been showcased in countries around the world and she serves as an ambassador for globally recognised names such as Marley Coffee and Recover Brand. She is both a pioneer and an innovator and is most admirably using her platform to spread awareness about the need for environmental sustainability.
Raised by a hard-working single mother, Lauren learned to be self-reliant when she was still quite young. “From an early age I craved independence. My parents were divorced and my mother was always working so I had to teach myself many important life lessons, like riding a bike.” It is this same sense of independence, coupled with the loving guidance of her mother and the mentorship of fellow artist Alex Morrissey, that pushed Lauren to become the highly admired creative she is today.
