Lori, originally from Toronto, spent her childhood growing up in East Vancouver trolling the alleys with her Grandad looking for junk to make cool things. Her love for design and creating began at an early age and lead her to study Fine Art at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, as well as Interior Design at BCIT. At the beginning of 2015, Lori returned from a 6 month sabbatical in the Netherlands. Since her return, her work has evolved dramatically yet still preserves a passion for creating movement, texture and depth within a defined palette. Her new works evoke complex dichotomies of calm and chaos and respond to feminine and masculine qualities of the darkness and light that live within us all. The techniques she uses are varied and spontaneous harnessing the attributes of acrylic paint, charcoal, pencil and ink to create a series of partially painted and partially drawn imagery that lies close to her heart.
