Lori Parish

Artist Bio

Lori has been creative her whole life, always colouring, drawing and constructing things to play with as a youngster. She then began expressing her creativity through gardening, gourmet cooking, decorating and of course painting

Lori was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario then moved around Eastern Ontario before settling in beautiful Kingston.

Although she was discouraged from a full time art career by family, and thus ventured into accounting and office work for several years followed by a return to college to become a Registered Massage Therapist, Lori never lost her passion for painting, which carried her forward into being a well-liked and respected professional artist.

Lori’s paintings come from a place of emotion and energy. Most are intuitive and spontaneous in their emergence and they speak a language of connection.

“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep” (Scott Adams).
