Lauren Little is a multifaceted artist, educator, and curator originally from London, England. Her recent work explores fragmented portraiture, exploring themes of resilience and overcoming hardship, trauma and adversity.


Lauren studied Fine Art and Education at the University of Calgary in Canada, where she resided for 14 years. While her journey has led her back to her roots in London, where she now lives as a full-time artist and curator, she cherishes her extensive experience as an art educator, having spent many years as an Art Lecturer at the University of Reading as well as teaching art to school-age children.

Her artistic pursuits continue to evolve as the visionary behind Feeding Stick Figures, a blog about teaching art to children and as the Founder and organiser of Dark Yellow Dot, an award-winning platform championing emerging artists and their work. Continuing on her own journey, Lauren remains committed to empowering people to embrace their potential towards a creative and fulfilling life.

Feeding Stick Figures

When I was a primary school art teacher, I created, sourced and adapted countless art project ideas, illustrated my own handouts and templates, and blogged about my experiences. I've now made all my resources for available for sale and stored many art lessons on my blog for others teaching art to young children
