About the Artist
Lauren Marie Nitka is a Milwaukee Metro based fine artist. She is geographically inspired by her hometown of Greendale, WI and the American Southwest, emphasizing psychogeography in her work, or the psychological response to an environment. Lauren has recently begun exercising Prophetic Art as a form of worship and prayer.
Lauren attended Wisconsin Lutheran College, and received her Bachelor’s Degree in both Art Education and Elementary Education. As an art educator herself, Lauren believes art is not an isolated discipline but a collective consciousness that is built on culture and therefore values an intense study of Art History along with Studio Art in her classroom.
She enjoys traveling, especially to the Southwest and East Coast, spending time with family and friends, and continuously learning. Lauren has a poodle named Emmett. After teaching, she can be found working out and involved in her local communities.
