Born in Massachusetts, raised in Hawaii and now has settled in Tokyo, Illustrator, model, and actress Lauren Tsai shares the illustrations that guided her career's compass. Now, she’s focusing on building her career as an artist, a lifelong passion of hers.
"Astrid is a stand-in at times for what I am experiencing and represents visually what I cannot put into words through her relationships with the characters she’s surrounded by and her malleable form." - Lauren Tsai
Balancing Art & Modelling Career
"Art has consistently been a source of expression for my own subjective experience of life. It serves as a means of introspection as well as a means of connecting to others for me, so I have never found it hard to balance, as the experiences I have outside of art-making are just as important to the art-making process." - Lauren Tsai
Advice To Other Creatives
"Dedicating to your form of expression, in whatever forms it may present as, is a lifelong journey and that curiosity is worth pursuing as it is open-ended and allows for flexible growth. I hope that you can find peace in knowing that it will never really end. Each step of the way is equally valuable." - Lauren Tsai
