Lauren McLaughlin


Lauren McLaughlin studied at Edinburgh College and Central Saint Martins College of Art graduating with BA (Hons) Fine Art in 2012. Her practice is multidisciplinary and explores gendered identities with a focus on the role of the maternal. Through a process of examining our cultural history as well as current attitudes, her work aims to uncover and question how these roles were first formed. Lauren’s current work has been focused on the economics of parenting and the link between poverty and single motherhood. Using her own personal experience as grounds for investigation, Lauren aims to shed light on the complex issues and challenges faced by low income mothers and the attitudes and double standards placed upon them.

Lauren is also the founder of Spilt Milk, a non-profit organisation whose mission is to support and bring visibility to mothers working in the arts as well as to provide creative opportunities for low income young mothers in order to inspire and empower them.
