Lori is a self-taught artist and began painting in 2006.
"I owe it all to PBS,” says Lori, as one day she came home early to have lunch, turned on the TV and began watching Terry Madden painting with watercolors. Lori was so moved to tears, that she jumped up and ordered his ‘as-seen-on-TV’ booklet. She later flew to San Francisco to study with him and became a certified Terry Madden instructor.
Lori can't wait to paint every day. It keeps her focused and constantly excited to explore watercolors, acrylics, mixed media, inks and now oils. She loves painting big, bright and bold colors; it moves her like nothing else.
Recently someone asked Lori what her mission statement is; 'It's very simple: Live, Love, Laugh and keep painting till the cows come home.'
She teaches Fast and Fun Acrylics, and has an extended body of work in Mexico, Canada and the U.S.
