Lori Brown's Profile

About

Well hello there, nice to make your acquaintance. I am a self taught artist born and raised in a small, rural, town about an hour outside of Cincinnati. As a little girl I spent my days playing in the woods, scribbling on whatever were convenient and building little figures from mud, sticks, toy dishes, mismatched socks, cotton balls and anything else I could get my hands on. Some things never change…I still head for the woods every chance I get and, while my methods are more refined, I’m still just scribbling little characters and crafting figures from whatever’s within reach. My current breadth of work includes paper pulp sculptures, felt softies, acrylic paintings and digitally colored ink drawings.

I have a blog, themorninglorivine.typepad.com where I share my artwork, my inspirations and random tidbits about my life. Stop by and say…

Artist’s Statement

I rarely have preconceptions about the pieces individually. Rather, I’ll develop a concept for an entire body of work then carry that theme as far as I can. For me the act of creating is an intuitive process, a physical relationship with the materials I’m using. I don’t begin with an image in mind. At the end I’m often pleasantly surprised.

My current work explores a synthesis of ideas. One is of creatures from other worlds. This is fueled by the mystery of the forest and my affection for science fiction and fantasy literature. The other is of the preservation and display of creatures and natural oddities; an idea that stems from a fascination with the evolution of the natural history museum. I imagine a room full of my work as an exhibit compiled of images and specimens collected by a team of adventurous scientists who discovered a portal to another realm. Who knows what they’ll bring back next or what discoveries lay ahead.
