Lori Wallace-Lloyd has been an artist since childhood. As a former military officer stationed in Italy, she became fascinated with painting. She began her classical art training at the Alelier of Virgil Elliot and studied afterwards with many artists around the USA. Lori has also earned her Master of Fine Arts in Drawing and Painting from the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, CA. Lori has won many awards for her work including Grand Prize and People's Choice Award in Portland, OR. Lori now makes Castleton, VA in Rappahannock her home.
"I strive to develop a luminous quality of light within my paintings. Through exploration of chiaruscuro and my use of bold color in a classical manner, each painting becomes a journey. I use both classical themes and archetypes, and am constantly inspired by history as well as by my contemporaries."
