Lori Meeboer is a Canadian artist living in Corbyville ON, just north of Prince Edward County. Lori studied at Trent University and has been painting most of her life. She is a third generation artist, with her father and grandmother both painting in oils. Lori spent much of her summers in the Canadian Shield and her works reflect her passion for the Canadian outdoors. She paints in a mosaic style that is bold and whimsical and full of colour and passion.
Lori has been painting professionally (in acrylics) since 2009 and has been teaching art since 2011. She has over 10k followers on social media and is in six galleries across Canada.
She is passionate about helping aspiring artists find their voice and unique style and navigate their way through the often elusive path from becoming a hobby painter to a professional artist.
If you’re looking for a mentor to support your journey to finding your distinct style with guidance and critique, and to help you with the business side of art (pricing, social media, shipping, selling online, gallery applications) then Lori is the mentor for you.
