A self-described minimalist who "sees beauty in simple complexity," Lorrie (known as "L.B.") works in watercolor. She had no formal art training, but her parents exposed their children to art during forays to galleries and antique shops. Her first experience with making art occurred when a therapist gave her a brush, paper and paint and told her to "paint the blackness out; paint your emotions away." She has worked as a professional designer and fabricator of copper and aluminum earrings.
