LoriWelcome to Art By Lori, I hope you enjoy your visit. 

I was born in 1961 and have 4 wonderful children and 4 gorgeous grandsons and a beautiful granddaughter. My husband Richard and I live in a small village in Essex within a few minutes walk to the coast.

Although I have always enjoyed art it was only when I was in my late 30s that I started seriously drawing and painting again.  I am mainly self-taught learning through books and the Internet but by joining an adult art class it enabled me to explore different mediums and find my passion for portraits of animals and people. I mostly use pastel and graphite pencils as they give me more control and allow me to get greater detail.  I also like experimenting with other mediums and styles.

Are you looking for that special present for someone or maybe you just wish to treat yourself then why not have a portrait done.  Just click here for more information on prices and how to go about ordering a commission.  

Thank you for taking the time to visit, feel free to contact me if you need any further help and please leave any feed back in the guestbook.
