I’m so happy to present our new featured artist. Her name is Lori D. and she is a painter, illustrator, and animator living in Portland, OR. I have actually known Lori since we were kids and she has always been one of my absolute favorite people. I have such amazing respect for her authenticity, not only in her work but also the way she lives her life.
Her work is direct and brings a smile to my face every time. Most of her subject matter consists of these strangely beautiful little humans living in a kind of parallel, but closely related world. While all her paintings have a hilariously odd quality, at times there is clearly appears to be a darker undercurrent running through them. I also believe there is enough ambiguity in the images to allow for a wide range of interpretations.
I hope you find her work as fun, creative, and inspiring as I do. If you’d like to see more of it, check out her website here.
