About Lauren Rader

Lauren Rader is a lifelong artist and art educator. Her new book, Studio Stories, Illuminating our Lives through Art, offers intimate real-life portraits of lives deepened through creativity. Beginning as a teen arts-and-crafts counselor at a camp in the Poconos, Lauren has introduced generations of children to the wonders of art.  In 2005, she opened her art studio to adult students, offering classes for women called Releasing the Creative Powers Within.  The women’s personal and collective journeys into creativity became the inspiration for Studio Stories. Lauren’s works in stone, clay, oils and pastels have been exhibited in California, Colorado, Maryland, Massachusetts, Texas, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Embassy in Fiji and are in numerous private and corporate collections.  She currently resides in Bethesda, Maryland.
