Lauren Napolitano

Lauren Napolitano is a traveling mixed media artist creating anything out of everything.

Lauren’s work is about celebrating the handmade and the imperfections that come along with it. She is incredibly influenced by her mother’s Mexican heritage and she leans heavily on those ancestors as she creates and gathers inspiration. Using symmetry and traditional Mexican craft (tile, textile, wood carving) as her starting point, each line is truly unique, and any flaw is simply showing the beauty of the human hand. Lauren finds it important to achieve depth with simple lines and dots, taking something so simple and creating a complex world within. As a woman, she loves to explore bold lines while adding a clearly feminine mark, inventing delicate pattern work to incorporate a sense of balance through it all.
