Natural Dyer, Visual Artist & Healer
Lauren Schwind is an artist living in Philly under the name Subnormalchild. She uses a multitude of magical skills such as drawing, painting, natural dyes while also working as a healer, exploring the modalities of tarot and reiki.
Lauren’s illustrations explore themes of the divine feminine or the shadow self. Issues of identity, sexuality, connectivity and isolation are depicted with a sense of honesty and reverence with a focus on a central language spoken in arrows and masks. These illustrations take new life as they have been recently transferred into her painting as well as being screen printed onto naturally dyed fabric. As she has explored the divine feminine, Lauren’s work has shifted some into using plant-based materials to not just better honor the most sacred feminine (mother earth) but to help further explore the idea of working intuitively with her.

“I believe in art as a form of alchemy, allowing us to transmute our experiences into something meaningful.
