Lauren DiCioccio lives in San Francisco and works primarily in the media of soft sculpture and embroidery.  Her work explores the expressive qualities of cloth and thread; she uses these materials to make objects about empathy, nostalgia, melancholy and joy.  Her work has been exhibited at the Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, the Laguna Art Museum, the Bellevue Arts Museum and she is represented by Jack Fischer Gallery in San Francisco, CA.
