Lori Amor’s artistic career might have started after she was given permission to use her Aunt’s oil paints as a teenager in her small home town in Texas. The trees that she painted in her Aunt’s make shift dining room art studio may not have looked very happy but the calm focus she felt whilst smearing paint on canvas fueled her to pursue and explore more suitable artistic landscapes.
Later, in addition to painting and drawing, she began using traditional and digital photography. Combining these, to her mind, seemed to reconcile her need to make art with her intense interests in science and technology.
Over the years Lori continued experimenting with different materials and methods for creating art, only straying from this path a few times for a career in IT and to gain an MSc in Computer Science. She’s done performance art, installations, become obsessed with archiving everything, mixing her own acrylic paint and incorporated science and technology into her work whenever possible.
Lori is currently based in the UK, still experimenting and exploring within the calm focus that making art brings to her.
