Artist Statement
Growing up on the coastal waters of Savannah, Georgia, Lori is drawn to paint the horizon and unbounded vistas of sky, sea and land. Reflecting the light, color and atmosphere of the Northern California coast where Lori now lives, her contemporary plein air and studio oil paintings are in the tradition of the California Impressionists and reflect moments of contemplation upon nature.
