Lori grew up in Indialantic, Florida. She graduated from Florida State University with a Studio Art Degree. It wasn’t until 2005 that she revisited the fact that she actually had some artistic talent. She took a watercolor class at the Brevard Art Museum in 2005 and was hooked.
Lori enjoys painting realistically using bold colors and creating a sense of drama. She intensifies the use of color and contrast to create exciting works. Her subject matter seems to gravitate towards food, especially seafood. She began entering shows and selling her art as an experiment in justifying her passion. Now these passions have transformed her. Lori is an award winning artist and signature member of Florida Watercolor Society and Southern Watercolor Society.
