The focus of Lorie’s paintings is nature, whether it is close-ups of vines, roots, fruit, flowers, animals, etc. or panoramic landscapes inspired by local scenes and those in European countries that she has visited. “I love to hike with my husband and close friends. We have trekked through England, France, Italy and Switzerland, and also have hiked many local trails. While hiking I use my camera to record what I see and then create paintings in my studio. The process of painting these scenes brings to life all that I experience while hiking. I feel as if I’m still there.”
