Andrea Lauren is a textile designer and print maker who’s charming works are a delight to witness! Using a multitude of traditional media, Lauren’s pieces may be contemporary, but still hold a feeling of old-world sentiment. Though Lauren is originally from England, these works are somewhat reminiscent of Eastern European folk stories and children’s books, both in content and style. Almost as fun as the final products is the process itself of making each print. Among the printmaking methods the artist uses to create her works are silk-screening and linoleum cut stamps.
Though these processes of printmaking allow the artist to make several of a similar image, the method of doing everything by hand from cutting to inking to printing itself means that each print will actually be slightly different. Further more, these prints are only available in limited run, and once they are gone, they’re gone for good!
To see some of these limited edition Andrea Lauren prints (of both silk-screen and linoleam) please visit the AG Gallery.
