LoriELori was born in Memphis, TN and has lived all over the country. Her only formal art training was a semester of painting and drawing at Santa Reparata School of Art in Florence, Italy.

Lori loves to paint and is inspired by a variety of artists. She enjoys working in watercolor and acrylics and likes to paint subjects from where she's lived and traveled, and does portraits of her children. She also has a wine and painting party business and loves sharing her passion with others in a party setting. She is also working on writing her first children’s book.

Lori has participated in downtown St. Joseph's public art display each year she's lived here. This year she went with an “I Spy” theme inspired by the books she reads to her kids and the game “I Spy.” She hopes people enjoy trying to find the pictures all over her bee.

Lori has lived in Stevensville for six years and spends most of her time raising her four children, boys ages 4 and 5 and twin girls turning 2 in August.
