CV

Lauren Moore

I am a carnival and outdoor artist specialising in costumes, illuminated works and puppets. With almost a decade of experience as a performer, I design with movement, environment and culture in mind and keep my work ‘human-focused’. I love to create interactive pieces that captivate viewers and performers alike. My goal is to continuously expand my skill set and pass this knowledge on to others so that arts and crafts can thrive in the U.K. and beyond.
