Lori Rockwell in the Sieg Gallery
Artist Bio: Lori’s passion is in creating and finding unique ways to express that creative side. In creating she aims to bring happiness and pleasure to others. Art was introduced to her at a very young age by her Grandmother and is a common bond shared with her son Seth.
Through the years Lori has experimented with pen and ink and watercolor and has been inspired by the works of Brienne Brown as well as Thomas Moran. Watercolor has become one of her favorite mediums to work with. Recently she began painting with acrylics on Dove feathers. These feathers she believes are gifts from the Doves, left behind for feeding them in her yard. (Maybe the cat helps!)
Paper Tole or Three Dimensional Decoupage is an art that captivated Lori from the start because of its uniqueness and the challenges that each picture presents. This art is created from flat prints and involves precision cutting, shaping, and assembling of paper layers to achieve a three dimensional picture. A firm understanding and knowledge of perspective is a must. It is believed that this art first began in a varied form during the 17th century and is an art form rarely seen in our present time.
Besides the fine arts Lori also enjoys playing the fiddle, 5 string banjo and old time clog dancing. She resides in a little log cabin, near Julian PA, with her husband Rocky.
Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 12:00 - 4:30 pm OR By Appointment
