"I am creating many different worlds based off of the physical world and the internal world. Using the walls of my studio, I work with muslin, screen printed drawings, fabrics, and many layers of water-based paints."
"Many of my paintings are large in scale, and my style is a hybrid of neo-pop and expressionism." - Laurie Shapiro
Laurie Shapiro is a mixed media artist. She is a former native New Yorker who now calls the Bay Area home. Her work employs various methods such as screen printing and sewing on large pieces of muslin. Her work is visceral and intuitive. She reflects upon the physical and psychological.
