"Italian Tonight"

Lori Jacobs Farist

My passion for expressing myself through the visual arts has been there since early childhood.  I currently hold an Associates Degree in Fine Arts but I consider myself a life long student of trial and error.

I am attracted to painting because I'm interested in what makes something beautiful and how we are a part of that.  It’s the relationship between light and shadow and colors that intrigues me to paint.  I use bold colors and loose brushstrokes to convey a certain mood.

What I want do is make art that is easy to relate to.  I want people to see themselves in it.  It reflects stories, memories, thoughts, ideas, and places.  It encompasses the connection that we have to each other.
