Good episode? Give it some love!
One of my favorite artists, Lauren Napolitano joins the Nod this week! Lauren works in a multitude of mediums on a multitude of surfaces.  Whether it's a drawing on paper or object, a mural on a wall or a tattoo on someone's skin ;  everything Lauren makes is beautiful, unique & full of its' own inborn magic. 
This conversation took place back in November of 2019. While this seems like a lifetime ago in current events, this episode is deeply relevant especially those who find themselves called to the artist's path. 
We touch on everything from the challenges of nomadic muralist life, cultivation of style, working with at risk youth, creating the mural festival POW WOW Nepal,  leveraging one's art to make a positive impact on communities, the benefit of therapy, Lauren's experiences with Peyote and other psychedelic medicines and a lot more. 
Lauren's Bio fro her website : 
"My work is about celebrating the handmade and the imperfections that come along with it.  I am incredibly influenced by my mother's Mexican heritage and I lean heavily on these ancestors as I create and gather inspiration.  Much of what I create falls between the themes of being surrounded/supported or the symbiotic energy/movement between every living organism. Earth and sky, life and death, love and sorrow, I explore these connections through invented pattern and symbology in order to find balance, growth and healing."
Lauren has a beautiful brand new print available now in her shop!
