Lavern Spruill


I love any and everything pertaining to art. I want to find ways to help others by giving them a platform to express and show their talent and give back at the same time. As a little girl, I’ve always loved the creative arts, particularly music and visual arts. I graduated from Weequahic High School in Newark, NJ and later served in the United States Army. While in the Army, I continued my education in Business Management while studying Art and Music Appreciation at Enterprise Community College in Enterprise, AL.

I enjoy traveling and had the privilege of working alongside the Peace Corps in a humanitarian mission in Ukraine. I’ve also traveled to Paris, Germany, Kuwait, and Sweden. I have a passion for photography and started my own freelance photography business, NightRain Photography, named after my second born Amaya who’s name means night rain.

I have a collaboration, working alongside my brother Tim Spruill, where we provide graphic design, web design, print and logos for many businesses in the Boston area. Fall of 2017, we launched LV magazine.

My daughter, Felicia Johnson, also assists in operating LV Magazine. She is a professional makeup artist with years of experience in beauty and fashion blogging. We recently collaborated on my first film, The Reeves, which will premiere in October 2018. I wrote, directed and produced the film and Felicia provided the special effects makeup.

In my free time, I keep busy with my writings. I’m currently in the early stages of writing an autobiography, which I hope to one day produce into a film.
