The mini-collection "Mind" explores motifs from the artist's dreams, addressing elements of identity and the search for purpose in the language of subconscious symbolism. All four of the watercolor pieces in "Mind" were produced in 2021.

Lauren Kelly is a self-taught visual artist and Citizen Potawatomi tribal member from Oklahoma. Alternating between watercolor and acrylic paints as medium, Kelly’s introspective work blends the mystical and the mundane in exploration of her own intersectional identity.
