About the Artist

When Lori was planning her wedding years ago, she could not find the perfect jewelry to wear for her special day. She finally realized that she would need to make her own beads.

After enrolling in a class with her mentor Sam Hibler, Lori was hooked on the craft of melting glass and shaping it into something entirely new. She made all of the beads and jewelry for herself and her bridesmaids in the wedding using a small torch set up on her back deck.

Several years later, and while she is still relatively new at the craft, Lori spends much of her spare time in her new studio drawn to the flame. There, she creates and experiments with colors and shapes, helpless to the draw that this art inspires in her.

The Blue Damsel is one of her favorite fish, and represents one of her other passions in life. As a certified scuba diver with hundreds of dives under her belt, she finds her sanctuary under the water where she looks for inspiration for her art.

Her other passion in life is her family. Her husband and stepsons have encouraged her and made it possible for her to dedicate the time needed to develop her skills. Most importantly, they gave up their "man cave" to be converted to her studio.
