Lori Klassen grew up in a small Mennonite town in southern Manitoba. Her first contributions to the art world were in performance, singing on operatic stages across the country. Lori discovered visual art in the late 90s after taking a summer course in painting with Carolyn Livingston. She has since studied both fine and decorative art and currently works out of her studio at the Distillery District in Toronto. She has been a regular guest on the Women’s Television Network’s shows, “Divine Design” and “Candice Tells All” with Candice Olson and has worked for many years as a fine artist, decorative painter and muralist. Her paintings and drawings can be found in collections worldwide.
