I painted and donated this acrylic on tote bag painting (On My Way 2), Leduc County, for a fundraiser for the Premium Outlet Collection for the United Way to benefit those that live in poverty. Thank you everyone for voting for my tote...It Won!     All proceeds raised went to the United Way!

These 3 paintings of our trails are smaller originals (12"x12").  They are part of the further development of my series that now includes trails above the valley in an urban setting.   All of my paintings are available as reproductions in various sizes including as greeting cards.  In the near future it is also my hope to add paintings of our valley from the vantage point of the North Saskatchwan river that runs through it and the surrounding areas.

 

 

I now have 54 Edmonton river valley paintings to choose from.

I enjoy making my clients dreams a reality and  love doing commissions of any subject matter that I specialize in.  Here are a few of them and you can also look on my ONLINE STORE for more examples.

It was such a pleasure painting this special spot located in Glenora called Alexander Circle.  My client also wanted a few dragonflys in the painting that are of special significance to him.  Contact me for a quote on your special keepsake.  This painting is available as a square version in my Edmonton series.

This original was painted for Camp Warwa, Lac Ste Anne.  It features the vibrant sunsets there and them canoeing.  This was a commission done for this great organization and they are selling reproductions of it. 

 

This custom mosaic pillar that I designed, created and installed transformed the pillar that used to be there. This project was done in my studio and then installed onsite.

Frank is a mixed media artist that uses various mediums such as acrylics, watercolours, pastels, pencil, oil, mosaic tesserae materials and natural objects.  Frank is an avid photographer since also taking it in school and likes to photograph what she'll create when she is working on a specific subject of importance. Lori describes her painting style as impressionist realist.  
 
Her work has also been described as "dreamlike, almost frozen glow of acrylic pointillism", by Fish Griwkowsky, Edmonton Journal, June 17, 2014.
 
For over 6 years her muse and creative subject has been the Edmonton river valley.  She conceived and developed her Stairway to Heaven, Trailblazing and Connector series during this time; and continues to focus on creating new works of these series.  She spends hours in Edmonton's beautiful river valley photographing some of the better known hiking trails, stairways and bridges, giving them new life with her unique painting technique. Lori has now painted over 54 paintings of the Edmonton river valley.
In winter 2014 she was interviewed and her art was featured in a segment by Dez Melenka, called "On Your Street", on Ctv Edmonton; as well as appearing on City Tv, Global Tv and featured in the Edmonton Journal and on Capital FM.
 
Her exhibits in 2014 included unveiling her river valley series at city hall for a featured solo show for The Works Art and Design Festival.  She was chosen by jury for a group exhibit by the River Valley Alliance and Visual Arts Alberta "Marking the Valley" held at the Northern and Southern AB Jubilee Auditoriums.  In December she also had a solo exhibit featuring her Stairway to Heaven series at  the Milner Gallery.
 
She has been at the outdoor city market 104 Street with her pop up gallery since 2014 as well.

In April 2016 a feature produced by Madelaine Skinner of Nait's Broadcasting School (on the CTV2 channel)  featured Lori in it and was about the importance of managing your Art business in today's economy ( see video on the top of this page).  July 2016, "Where Edmonton" magazine listed Lori's Edmonton river valley art as one of the top selections of art to "take a piece of the city home with you", in their Made in Edmonton article by Lindsay Shapka.  In September the "Riverdalian" newspaper featured Lori's painting of the Cloverdale Footbridge in it.  On November 30,  2016 the Edmonton Journal featured Lori's art and greeting cards in their holiday gift guide.  April - May 5/17 Lori had a solo art show "Valley Girl" at the Muttart Conservatory. On July 5th Lori was interviewed by Bridget Ryan by request of The organizer of the Artwalk to help promote the upcoming event.  Until May 23rd, 2018 Lori participated in the VOTE FOR YOUR TOTE fundraiser for the United Way in support of those living in poverty. Thank you for voting for my tote and for going to see it at the Premium Outlet Collection at our Edmonton International Airport....it won! Lori's gratitude and dream continues...
