-Lori has been creating art in various forms throughout her entire life. An art contest entry landed her a scholarship where she continued with a year of studio art. Weathering a few unexpected twists and turns, Lori has made a return engagement to Huntsville, as part of the Katrina exodus in 2005. During this time, she has created, taught, and programmed art with the Girl Scouts of North Alabama, Huntsville Art League, MWR Arts & Crafts Center, Osher Lifelong Learning (OLLI), Learning Quest, and Fern Bell Recreation Center. In addition to developing the concept and leading 'Brushstrokes: Painting with Friends' courses, Lori is also a Certified Zentangle instructor and presents classes throughout Madison County.
