LORI LABISSONIERE

Lori LaBissoniere Profile Photo

Lori carves lines on her work surfaces much in the way she surfs and shreds, working with and passionately respecting the mountain and coastal landscapes she plays in. Spirited, yet strong, her works create vivid environments that echo the physical beauty in which she revels; while at the same time, her brush filters that beauty through her uniquely stylized lens. Lori brings her love of Expressionistic color and composition into the contemporary realm. With reclaimed wood and acrylic paint, her work reflects her devoted concerns for the environment. As deforestation, pollution, and growing populations increasingly threaten the Pacific Northwest landscape, her work calls attention to the sacred beauty of nature and the urgency to protect it.

Lori has a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art from Gonzaga University and is a certified K-12 Art Teacher. She currently lives in Bend, Oregon, working as freelance designer, artist, and substitute teacher. Her work has been featured across the Northwest.
