Nancy Goodman Lawrence
Los Angeles, California, USA


I am a mixed media artist with an interest in incorporating invented shapes into work that suggests imaginary or surreal landscapes. I use paint, maps, ink, vintage style wrapping paper and found papers in my work. I am interested in the formalities of picture making as well as the narratives that can lie beneath the surface.


I am a Los Angeles artist working in collage and mixed media. I studied at UCLA and earned a BA in art. I have won many awards, and my work is featured in publications including Collage, Assemblage and Altered Art (2008) by Diane Maurer-Mathison; Masters: Collage, Major Works by Leading Artists (2010) by Randel Plowman; The American Journal of Nursing, June 2012; Geo Graphic-A Book for Map Lovers (2013) published by Index Book; Gasher Journal, Summer 2019 and How Art Heals: Exploring Your Deep Feelings Using Collage by Andra F. Stanton, 2021.
