About Me

Hi, I’m Laurén.

I am a self-taught artist who just left her corporate job of ten years to start a business of hand-painted vintage leather jackets, clutches and custom items.

OnceUponaLaurén was my first-ever email and AOL chat room username. It’s the only name I’ve ever used on social media. It was the name of the blog I started when my husband & I decided to buy a house, renovate it and throw a wedding in the same summer. And so, it only seemed fitting to use that name when I started a business. Onceuponalauren.com is a little of all those things rolled into one.

Follow along with my in-progress leather pieces & life in Jersey City with our black mutt Zoey on instagram, shop on etsy and for everything else, get in touch: onceuponalauren@gmail.com
