Lori began working in clay at an early age and received a BFA in Ceramics from The Rhode Island School of Design in 1977. Continuing her studies in Fine Arts, she went on to receive an MA in Ceramics in 1979 from the University of Michigan Art School and an MFA in Video Arts from the School of Art Institute of Chicago in 1981.
Video led Lori to a long and successful career in Advertising, and after a 25 year hiatus from the art world, Lori moved to Aspen where she re-embraced her love for clay and began a new journey of creation.
Her work captures compelling organic forms in a very simple and beautiful way. Using various materials in addition to clay, Lori’s sculptures delight the observer with a lyrical humor and rare grace.
Her sculptures have been displayed in numerous galleries in the west, including The Co-Art Gallery of Denver, The Meyers Gallery in Santa Ana, Ca. The Red Brick Arts Center and the Aspen Chapel Gallery in Aspen, Co.
Lori currently lives between Aspen and Denver with her husband, Pete, and her Parsons Russell Terrier, Kawaii.
