LAUREN STANFORD was born and raised in Anchorage, Alaska. Her childhood summers were spent at her grandparents’ remote homestead on Lake Clark, Alaska. As a fourth generation Bristol Bay commercial fisherman, she now spends her summers setnetting for sockeye salmon near the mouth of the Naknek River. Lauren began taking ceramic courses at Colorado State University while obtaining her BA in English, Creative Writing. After graduating in 2010, she returned to Alaska. Within a few years, Lauren, ever the chronic student, returned to school full time to study art. She earned her BFA in Ceramics from the University of Alaska, Anchorage in 2018. Her sculptures and paintings have been featured in campus shows and in Anchorage galleries, as well as private collections in Alaska, Washington and California.
