ABOUT THE ARTIST
Lori began painting for personal enjoyment and over the past 15 years, her art has been included in exhibitions at Pelham Art Center in Pelham, NY, Beaux Arts Exhibition in Dobbs Ferry, NY and other venues.
Her work was featured in two solo exhibitions held exclusively to benefit Hearts & Homes for Refugees, a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping refugees resettle with dignity and hope. Her “Glimpses of the Places They Called Home”online auction was held in 2020, followed by the 2022 “Visions of Home Lands” exhibition displayed in White Plains Library Gallery in White Plains NY.
Both the refugee families and the dedicated volunteers whom Lori has met as Board Member and active volunteer for HHR inspired and informed the work of these two collections - and more.
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.
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.
