Lori Parish

Artist Bio

Lori was born and raised in Toronto, Ontario then moved through suburbia and rural Eastern Ontario and now resides in beautiful Kingston.

Lori has been creative her whole life, always colouring, drawing and constructing her own Barbie houses as a youngster and then expressing herself through gardening, gourmet cooking, decorating and of course painting. Sadly she was discouraged from a full time art career by her mother and Lori went into accounting and office work for several years and then returned to college to become a Registered Massage Therapist. Lori is now a full-time, professional artist.

Most of Lori’s paintings come from her mind’s eye, from an intuition or a knowing. Many are completely spontaneous, yet are revisited several times until she is happy with the outcome. One of her favourite quotes about this process is “Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep” (Scott Adams).

Lori looks forward to a long and evolving career in the arts.
