About me

Lauren Karpinski.

Hi I’m Lauren!

ART: I love abstract art because it gets you out of your head and taps into your feelings and imagination.
I love creating one of kind paintings using different shapes, textures, layers and colors. I make interesting abstract pieces that are affordable and fun. Great for any space whether it’s a home or office or a special gift.
Everything you see is one of a kind, original art made by me. If you want a commission piece please email me.

I’m a self taught New Jersey based artist. I fell in love with abstract art years ago and it changed my life. I grew up around art and artists because my dad owned an art supply store but I never thought that I’d be an artist. I loved painting, crafts, building things and making home movies, but for some reason I never thought about a career in the arts. I came back to painting after hurting my neck and having to stop my work with Acupuncture and Massage. I went into a funk for awhile and then I started painting with an old sample paint set I had, probably from my dads store. It was like a bolt of lightening went through me. I didn’t understand why I hadn’t been doing this my whole life. It just fit. It just made sense. It also helped calm my anxiety and made me feel happy, excited and inspired! I was having fun and playing just like I did when I was younger. I felt free and full of mystery and possibility. I haven’t stopped painting since. I hope that excitement comes through in my pieces.

I went to school for an AS in Business, because I wanted to have my own business like my dad, and then a dual Masters in Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine and then a few years later I got my Massage License. So yeah, I’m a big wellness nerd and I love Acupuncture, Energy work, Meditation, Qigong, Mindfulness, Talk therapy, Crystals, Tarot, Yoga, Reading, Hiking, Nature and other self help things. And all this positive energy is infused in all my paintings. Hopefully to spread love and happiness to all.

NATURE.

Nature, I’d say, is a big influence in my life. I love being outside for walks or hikes or paddle-boarding. I need nature to feel well and whole. And this love of nature is another thing that influences my artwork.

On Etsy I sell prints and print on demand items such as T-shirts and Journals and more. See them on ETSY.

“Abstract art makes you feel, question and imagine. I love creating abstract pieces that can effect people with just colors, shapes and lines.” Lauren

ENERGY

So like I already said I’m a big wellness nerd. I currently don’t practice Acupuncture or Massage therapy. I had a neck injury which left my right arm in intense pain. I still love it though and still have my Massage license and the plan is to do Energy work instead of massage. I can still help others feel better and get their body to an optimal place to heal themselves with Reiki and intuitive energy work on energy pathways and points. I may offer online or in person session. Let me know if you’re interested.

YOGA

Yoga has made such a difference in my life. I’ve been doing Yoga on and off for over 15 years but it wasn’t until the last few years that I really got into the deeper Yoga lifestyle and understood there was more. I was a Qigong and Kung Fu nerd for many years and yoga was just a flexibility and strength practice that’d I’d do here and there.Then I started to understand how similar Qigong and Yoga are. It’s about keeping the body flexible and strong (physically and energetically), keeping the circulation moving, the breath steady and deep and making time and space for stillness/meditation. And then I found Yin Yoga. I was hooked. Yin Yoga has been a game changer for my anxiety. I did my 200 hour Teacher Training and Yin Yoga training. Yin Yoga is my jam. It makes such a difference in how my body/mind feels. I feel more open and able to handle things. It really helps me anxiety. Yin Yoga is a staple in my day. I may offer Yin Yoga videos or in person classes at some point.

All these elements are parts that make up the whole of me. Of course there are many more but these are some things that will shine through in my finished work and my art process. Thanks for getting to know me.

If there is anything you need or any questions you may have please reach out and message me and I’d be happy to help you.

Thanks! From my heart to yours,


Lauren
