Hello and thanks for checking out my site! My name is Lauren Grissom, I am the founder and owner of Free & Fleeting Designs. I'm originally from Illinois but am currently living in Eagle, Colorado. I went to school at Texas State University and got a degree in communications but I've always had a passion for the arts and design. I used to paint and draw and experiment with photography just as a hobby. I eventually learned to macrame and started making wall hangings and home decor. I started selling my work at little art markets in local bars and was doing really well! I started to experiment with jewelry and that did even better so I decided to start this little business. I'm very inspired by nature and the outdoors so I incorporate a lot of organic shapes and natural stones into my jewelry and most of my photography and drawings are inspired by plants and wildlife. I love to create and having others find joy in my work and connect with my creations is the best part. I am constantly trying to improve my skills and grow as an artist so I am always trying new things and adding new designs so please visit my site again soon or give me follow me on instagram - @freeandfleeting.
