My name is Lauren but most people call me LaLa and I am a self-taught calligrapher and muralist. I was born and raised in Orange County but ultimately decided that I needed a fresh start in a new city. One day, I packed up my childhood room, made the perfect playlist, and set off for new adventures...less than an hour away in Los Angeles. What can I say, I like California and being close to family.
Growing up, I was a doodler. I loved drawing little flowers all over my notes/homework and actively worked on my handwriting. My flowers did not look like flowers and my writing was practically illegible but I did it anyway because doodling brought me comfort.
Letters x LaLa was born in the middle of the pandemic. Feeling a little lost as I navigated through online school and transitioning my career into health care - I once again found comfort in doodling and teaching myself calligraphy. I had no idea my little habit as a kid would turn into its own business but here we are and I am loving every second of it.
Some quick fun facts about me: I love to run. I am a big fan of waking up way too early to run an absurd amount of miles in the mountains...for "fun". Dessert is my favorite meal of the day, give me ice cream all day every day. My guilty pleasures are diet coke and quoting The Real Housewives taglines by heart. I have a nephew, he’s two and I can safely say I am 100% his favorite person (if I have the right snacks).
