Too Much Time On My Hands
20 x 20 inches
Lora’s life experiences have brought her to a place where she finds herself driven to create art about who she is, what moves her and what she feels. Her beautiful and dramatic works are filled with personal energy and emotion. After the traumatic loss of her mother at the young age of twelve Lora suppressed most of her thoughts and feelings until she picked up a camera in her late thirties. Often building sets by hand to create intimate, emotive and evocative self portraits, or plunging below the water’s surface, she creates images that reflect ideas and emotions that viewers are drawn to regardless of their personal journeys. Her images have an intentional painterly quality that gives her work a distinctive yet unique look, often blurring the lines between painting and photograph.
Lora is a photo based artist and lives in Oakville with her husband and two sons. Originally trained as an Occupational therapist, Lora, switched gears in 2011, and followed her creative passion. She is inspired by the world around her, her emotions, her fears and perspective of the world.
