Born in 1970, Narrogin Western Australia. 


Lori spent her early childhood on her family's farm at Yilliminning in the wheatbelt of Western Australia, and her early adult life jillarooing on the cattle station of her husband’s family, Wyloo, in the Pilbara, Western Australia. She now farms with her husband on their sustainable regenerative agricultural farming property in the south west of Western Australia, Boyup Brook, where her studio is located.

Lori is a nationally recognised artist, having held 29 solo exhibitions, hung in 50 group shows and shortlisted for over 90 awards. Notably she has won the Kilgour Art Prize, Newcastle Art Gallery 2021; finalist - Dobell Drawing Prize 2023; finalist - Salon De Refuse 2022; finalist - Portia Geach Memorial Award (2019-2022); The Alice Prize 2022; Len Fox Award 2000, 2022; winner - Toni Fini Black Swan Portraiture 2018; semi finalist - Doug Moran 2017,2018,2021.

With 'Nature / Culture' the exploratory heartbeat, conservation and 'regenerative' canons feature poignantly and topically in her current practise with installations of repurposed found flora and fauna adding a contemporary dynamic. 


​“My art practice is an exploration of myself, my identity and placement within my family’s multifaceted history. It is illustrated directly from lived experiences on country and my responses to, and relationship with our landscape. Matrilineal memories within my shared European and indigenous histories in the Australian landscape, engages commentary around the simultaneously constructive and destructive relationship between wo(man) and land.


The botanical elements in my work are used as a reflection of personal transformations. I link key positive personality traits of people with ecological characteristics of botanicals to create a distinctive 'language of flowers' as a way of expressing inner strengths/virtues. Importantly, they also seek to create a narrative around our cultural identity and role within our natural world."
