Ah, nicknames. They really do stick with you forever. In this particular case, it sneakily made it's way into my career and became a creative alias. Lauren O'Connell is my true identity (you can see how L.OCO came about now, right?). I'm a Long Island born and raised artist who took her studies to Savannah, Georgia to receive a BFA in Illustration with a minor in Painting at SCAD in 2010. In 2011, I got accepted into SVA's Computer Art program, earning an MFA degree with a focus in 3D Animation & VFX. While my current focuses include Motion GFX/design, digital painting and concept art, I refuse to be limited when it comes to which medium or software to use. Consequently, I'm constantly learning new tools/tricks of the trade to find new and refreshing ideas that elevate the creative process.
