Lori Ferguson is a Winnipeg based artist with a long history of creative expression. For many years, Lori has resourcefully used her creative gifts in her work as a spiritual leader, speaker, writer and musician bringing innovation, expression and art into everything she did. The artistic drive and need to create, combined with a pursuit of excellence, has lead her to expect that her work will communicate her thoughts and ideals to her community.
Lori works with mixed media and therefore uses a variety of mediums. Always one to push boundaries, test limits and see how far imagination can take her, she likes to keep her options open to many different mediums to ensure that her creative expression will not be limited or boxed in.
Lori’s training has been unorthodox. She absorbs technique, concepts, ideas, and knowledge like a sponge and finds that being around excellence has been her best tool to learn her trade. Therefore, she has positioned herself to learn from the best professional artists she can find. This, she feels, has been the greatest compliment to the training she received in the past from places like the LSRCSS Art program where she studied commercial art and the WAG training centre where she studied Drawing and the Human form.
Lori’s entrance to the world of professional art was prompted by the first place award she received in the mixed media category of the Interlake and Regional Juried Art Show in Selkirk in April 2018. It was the moment she knew that visual art was what she wanted to place her full focus on in the years to come.
