Lori has worked on jury and gallery committees. She now works out of her home studio creating contemporary fiber art employing traditional rug hooking techniques.  Plein air works are hand-dyed, hand-hooked, and placed in a gallery type frame.

 

Lori’s work is in private collections in the U.S, Canada, England, and Germany.  Works can be found at the TRAC Galleries in Burnsville and Spruce Pine NC, at her home studio and at shows. She is a juried exhibiting member of the Carolina Designer Craftsmen.
