Lauren Pulliam, born in Wilmington, Delaware in 1977, began her journey in art at the age of three. She got involved in the art world when she was in the first grade by selling pictures of birds to be able to purchase candy and perfume. Pulliam describes her sources of inspiration as scriptures from the bible, nature, and "discarded things." She enjoys finding items that people have discarded and putting them together to make something beautiful. Pulliam has a strong interest in creating art that has texture, as well as bringing items together that create something different and new. She uses clay and glue to incorporate these objects into paintings and jewelry. A number of Pulliam's works reflect her passion for creating something of beauty from discarded materials. One example of this is Beef (Doll), which features a ceramic head and limbs with a cloth body that she has filled with disparate soft materials including old socks, menstrual pads, and dress fragments. Another example is Untitled (Monster head), a ceramic mask that utilizes a found bone as well as dried beans for teeth. Lauren Pulliam's artistic practice is located at Creative Vision Factory.
