Lauren Thomson specializes in creating clean and efficient websites, visually compelling marketing materials and graphic design, and crisp, clever copywriting for small to medium-sized businesses, artists, start-ups, and the self-employed. She has been designing web sites since 1998.
Lauren has a background in fine art, marketing, public relations, copywriting, bookselling and garden design. She has worked for, and with, small, independently-owned businesses for over 25 years and understands the special, customized touch that a small business needs and prefers.
Lauren is a practical perfectionist; she has an astonishing eye for detail and an ardent desire to work efficiently. Anyone that knows her agrees she can get an extraordinary number of things done in a day — and do all of them very well.
When she is not busy talking about herself in the third person, she enjoys drawing, encaustic painting, gardening (particularly with blue flowers), soldering silver, enameling copper, and reading. She lives in a rambling old farmhouse with her husband, son, two lovely big dogs,
two three discriminating cats and a handful of chickens.
Lauren holds a BA in English Literature from the University of Pennsylvania, and has continued her education with various classes at the Corcoran School of Art, the Maryland Institute College of Art and the University of Maryland.
