Lori Bloom - Artist Creative art to inspire your soul
My passion is creating pieces that the viewer can identify
with and find their own story within.
My parents discovered my artistic talent at a young age and encouraged me to pursue a career in the art world. As a graduate from Purchase College with a BFA in hand, I opened my own mural and faux finishing business – Blooming Colors. I worked in the tri-state area where my work can be found in many homes and offices. After a time, I decided that I wanted to share my love of art with children and earned a MS in Art Education. I currently teach art to pre-k through 6th grade students. Settling into the routine of teaching, I am finally able to explore my own artwork again!
Living near the beach has inspired me to convey fragments of myself in my paintings. What started as simple journal pages turned into a surge of artwork in a new and freeing style. Each painting tells a piece of my story.
Each piece is intricately created using various mixed media methods. Watercolors, color sticks, colored pencils, markers, sparkles, painted chipboard, flowers, and various other materials, inspire my unique creation. There is some type of texture or movement created within each piece. Simple images come alive with splashes of vibrant colors.
I love using layers upon layers to create a distinctive textured look in my work.
