Lauren Dillon-Merrill earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Digital Arts and Design from Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. Her areas of special interest and skills include creative directing, concept development, photo manipulation, branding, styling, client relations, and especially photography.
Photography has been a passion for Lauren since a young age. In 2006 she created Metamorphic Images. Her photographs, reflecting her love of wild places and dedication to capturing their beauty, have been shown at galleries and displayed at business throughout the southeast. Her collections include images captured during her travels along the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, in Glacier and Yellowstone National Parks, the Bahamas, and Greece.
Most recently Lauren created Elisa Clothing Design, merging design and photography to produce a line of unique clothing. Using combinations of quality fabrics highlighted with stylized prints derived from sister company Metamorphic Images stock library, the clothing collections are designed with the modern artistic woman in mind. Lauren is the creator, designer, stylist, director of photography, and web designer for Elisa Clothing Design.
Some of Lauren’s other projects include 3D, public service announcements and ad campaigns, educational promotional for a national association, branding and logo design for a product line, and creative director for a retail gallery.
Lauren currently lives in Kenmore, WA with her husband and baby son.
