Latest works




The bottom piece is entitled THE LADIES , it is a watercolor of three sea nyphms done on 110 pound water color paper and then I "matted" it by quilting a border on it(it has a fabric back and label on it) with sea theme fabric and embelishing it with a favorite yarn that looks like flotsam to me ...and shells... This was created and will be auctioned Sunday night at a annual Art Auction for the Dare County Arts Council...tomorrow I will be at the 20th Artrageous which is family event that is the day before the auction the kids always have such a blast. We had always done them and had such a great time until I had to spend my time with John.

The top piece is a special gift I made for a friend of mine whose life took the same turn as mine a month later and we are both going through a transformation.
She had mailed me a little gift bag of leftover retro fabrics from some placemats she had made ...and challenged me to create something with them...Well it took two years But I did and it contains exactly 40 pieces one for each year for the Birthday she celebrated yesterday. The beackground is made of 29 pieces cut in 1/2 inch strips by 6 inches wide woven in a basket weave and stitched to interfacing.then the flowers were cut out and applied...I think it turned out pretty cool and she just called a few minutes ago and said she loved it. the funny thing is when I went looking for something to create for her for this special day this little bag which I didn't remember just sat there and wouldn't take no for a answer. I love being possessed by fabric

Enjoy my work please and I always love any kind of feedback positive or negative it is the only way I can grow .

Have a day full of blessings and enjoy the weekend I know I will...

Tammy thank you so much it is my first attempt a true art "quilt" traditonal paper and paint with fabric. I think it turned out interesting.

Why I create (my new name Lorri Lee Glennon)

Having been a artist literally all my life, I love color and dimension.I learned to sew at age 10 , by age 13 started a stuffed animal business, which grew into a collectable Teddy Bear Business for 15 + years. I opened my own bead store specializing in Spontaneous Creation classes and love to teach everyone they could be creative and open the door to their imagination.I recently returned to one of my favorite art forms taking photographs my father gave me my first camera when I was a child and I have loved photography ever since. I took professional family portraits and weddings for the first 5 years living in the Outer Banks, I am now shooting Family portraits again and sharing my love of the Outer Banks through my blogs. Be creative, walk in faith and never give up....It all happens in God's time
