Lori Mirabelli is an established local artist creating modern abstract art. Lori is originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. She studied Psychology at the University of Laurentian, and even though she wanted to pursue a career in fine art, she went on to work in the field of child welfare. Despite her full-time career, she continued to nurture her love of modern contemporary artwork and in 2009, she set her sights on breaking into the abstract art Toronto scene. She took a leap of faith, sold her house and moved to the big city.
Currently, Lori resides in her Downtown, Toronto studio-loft. Lori works primarily with acrylic paint on canvas; however, she is known to work oil and cold wax as well. As an abstract artist, her body of work is comprised of strong bold lines and fragments of geometric form that are coupled with an emphasis on space. Her specialty is creating large scale acrylic abstract paintings for homes, corporate offices, vacation properties and boutique businesses. In a few short years, Lori has grown and evolved as an accomplished Modern Artist. Art collectors and dealers who follow her painting career say that Lori’s body of work is always evolving. Her acrylic abstract art is a reflection of her personal thoughts, emotions, struggles, and triumphs. A biographical visual novel perhaps might be a better way of explaining this. With each brush stroke she releases a part of herself cleaning and purging what is no longer necessary and opening herself up to what should have been.
