LAUREN LEWIS: Fiber Artist
Lauren Norman Lewis is a Mount Vernon native. While there is only one formal artist in her family, her sister Audrey Norman, she comes from a long line of creative types, including both grandmothers Teny Tom and Ruth Norman who dabbled in paint. Christmas each year the entire family throws themselves into creative endeavors, handcrafting and creating homemade gifts.
After having grown up in Mt. Vernon, Lauren spent her formative young adult years in Austin, Texas, where she was heavily influenced by the Hispanic culture and arts, showcased in murals, art houses, and regional festivals.
Her work is tactile, and she is drawn to mediums that evoke a sense of touch. In addition to fiber art she dabbles in 3D dioramas, collage work, and multi medium pieces.
