Born and raised in Kimberley, artist Lori Joe transfers into her art a lifelong passion for the love of the mountain lifestyle and the history that creates beautiful mountain communities, such as Kimberley.

Upon graduation from Selkirk High School, Lori received a local Arts Council scholarship allowing her to study Fine Arts at Okanagan College. When not busy working with local youth and teaching art classes in her home community Lori can be found painting in her studio or enjoying nature out her back door.

“My goal when painting is to place vibrant rich colours on canvas, and sprinkle in a little fun. I try not to get to caught up in the details, but to leave a little room for the viewers imagination. After all, imagination can take us anywhere we want to go!”
