ABOUT THE ARTIST:
I'm Lori Montgomery and for the past 26 years have resided in the city of Aliso Viejo, Orange County/California. My favorite 'zone' to work to create, paint, etc .is from my home. Home is my greatest inspiration....with my family.
I have always appreciated the arts in its many forms, however ever since I can remember, I have been intrigued by paintings that told a story and that the story was not only from the perspective of the artist, but from its viewers. Painting to me, can be an escape, therapy, an expression, message, and its magic reminds me how lucky I am to be able to do something I absolutely love.
I have been influenced by so many artists that it's hard to pinpoint who my greatest influence has been. It has a canvas to offer a message to everyone who looks at it, studies it and is impressed by how it moves you. This is what art does to me and why I keep painting.
The mediums I use are mainly oil pastels, acrylics, and watercolor. I attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA . However, my greatest teacher would be my intuition. It allows my paintings to be authentic and genuine.
One of my greatest achievements is my acceptance to display a couple of my works at the Laguna Art Gallery. I am so grateful.
