Lori St. Clair comes from a Graphic Design background with a photography major and started her journey into the arts on a professional level. She has exhibited her work throughout Ontario, including the Parliament in Ottawa, and has won awards for her photographs, for illustration, and for her paper pulp sculpture.

Her passion is teaching anyone and speaking to everyone about the power of creativity in our lives and the need for it in our world today. Lori enjoys the enchantment that surrounds the arts created through our partnership with imagination. She has taken her passion for the arts, and also for collaborative pieces that build co-operative teamwork and interdependency, into schools and art programs in the community to cultivate a hospitable, nurturing environment that encourages exploration, experimentation and growth.

WHO

Who am I?

A hard worker. A traveller, yet a rooted person who longs for home after a while. A perfectionist with a great deal of respect for tools and work. Previous incarnations include citrus farmer, working in publishing, documentary photographer, clerk, translator, art teacher, data input worker, book salesperson, copywriter, and more.

WHAT

I mostly paint outside or draw models. Over the past two years I have been attempting to combine the two Continue reading
