ABOUT THE ARTIST

LoriKapnerHospEdit.jpeg

Lori began painting for personal enjoyment and in recent years, her art has been included in exhibitions at Pelham Art Center in Pelham, NY and in the Beaux Arts Exhibition in Dobbs Ferry, NY. 

 

Recently, Lori undertook new works with a specific purpose: to assist refugees and asylees in our communities to become self sufficient in their new home. Both the refugee families and the dedicated volunteers whom Lori has met as Board Member and active volunteer for Hearts & Homes for Refugees inspired and informed this work.

Lori is also a member of the Board of Trustees for Scarsdale Synagogue in Scarsdale, NY. In the past, she served as a member of the Board of Directors of New York Women In Communications, Inc. (NYWICI) and as Co-Chair of Development for the organization's prestigious Matrix Awards for several years. Lori has also served on the Advisory Board for the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Prior to Lori's volunteer career, she worked for over 25 years in the communications industry as a strategist in global branding, corporate identity creation and business development. Her clients were primarily global corporations across many industries.

Lori credits her sculptor mother's encouragement and love for art as the impetus behind all that she has created. She thanks her husband Walter for his generous spirit and support of all her endeavors, and her children for their love, enthusiasm and creative insights.
