Fine-Art Printing & Artwork Reproduction

Morgan Henson
Printing manager

With us since 2019, Morgan manages all things printing at Southern Buoy. With a background in photography and fine-art he's a stickler for the finer details and making sure prints come out looking their best. He also manages all the the tech side of things at SB and is a sucker for a good spreadsheet. When he's not at work he's either working on his car or out taking photos.

Lauren Nicholas
Production manager

Lauren manages the production side of things at SB, keeping tabs on the whole process from raw materials to finished canvases, boards and frames. She (somehow) manages to keep everyone on the production floor in check and all orders going out on time. Outside of SB Lauren is a established abstract artist, check out her work!
