Lauren Gallegos earned her Bachelors of Fine Arts in Illustration from Cal State Fullerton in 2009 and has been illustrating ever since. When it comes to stories, Lauren has always loved books that warm the heart and touch the soul; timeless narratives that speak to your inner child whether you are 5 or 95. As a young girl she loved to pour over illustrations that were rich and full. Lauren still loves books that take you to mysterious places and let your imagination run wild with possibilities. Lauren is continually looking for opportunities to illustrate great stories with the desire to see how her work will impact the young minds of our future.

Lauren has illustrated a number of picture books, including the independently published and acclaimed series, The Coal Thief, The Egg Thief, The Santa Thief and The Circus Thief. She has also illustrated RUBIO & JULIENNE: A SWEET AND CHEESY TALE, published by Tilbury House Publishers. Lauren is a proud member of the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators. She lives in outside of DC with her husband and her young daughter.
