About the Artist :
Lori-Lee Thomas grew up in a small town along the Lower North Shore of Québec. Having been born in Newfoundland and only 30 minutes from the Labrador border, Lori-Lee was very influenced by her childhood and the culture around her, especially her father’s profession of being a fisherman. Having wonderful parents who provided an inspiring childhood, Lori-Lee now illustrates childrens books, and has recently completed working on her third illustrated book.
Lori-Lee has received her D.E.C. in Visual Arts at Champlain Regional College, Lennoxville, Québec and was considered to be one of the top students in her class. She has also recieved a degree in Fine Arts at Bishop’s University as well as Honours in Studio Arts. In her graduating Fine Arts Show Lori-Lee received 2nd prize for her paintings which depicted the downfall of the Atlantic Cod Fishery, and the aftermath of the moratorium.
Lori-Lee is also in the process of setting up an art studio in her hometown. Along with illustrating, Lori-Lee hopes to create artworks inspired by the rich nature, history and culture of Newfoundland, and the Lower North shore of Quebec.
