About Me!

me photo April 2016
My name is Lorie…..
I have been an artist my whole life…Kindergarten. was so much fun!
Then I took Geography and colouring was the best part.  In High School I won an award for my Sculpture and lithographs and that sent me on
my way to Cegep.  Art was different as I learned to draw  live models…..wow!,,
I married a wonderful man and had 3 wonderful children and my art
evolved into sewing, Tole painting, crochet and knitting and whatever craft caught my fancy.
Several years ago I met a wonderful teacher who re-ignited my love of painting with oils and drawing.  I dream of the hours I can spend painting and drawing …it is so meditative….I love it.
I was just published in an online magazine! Check it out!
Feedback would be wonderful !!!!
I have just started a new adventure in life and I now am giving guided painting classes in the evening…. I call it “Drink N Doodle”!  Absolutely no experience is required as I tell you exactly what to do and all materials are supplied.  It is a lot of fun so come on out and join me!
I got brave and finally put myself out there for the world to see!  I joined the Arbor Gallery in Vankleek Hill, Ontario and have sold several paintings.  Also, I am one of the Directors there and it is exciting to be asked to help coordinate the gallery shows and gift shop.  I joined a few art websites and am waiting to see if it was worth my while!  The Drink N Doodle is doing well and we are all having a lot of fun!  I would love for you to come and join me – you will be amazed at what I can guide you to paint!
