Lori Loebelsohn paints life cycle portraits creating a unique and personal artwork which inevitably becomes a family heirloom and marks lifes sacred occasions such as B’nai Mitzvahs, Weddings, and other Rights of Passage. Her website allows potential clients to browse available existing works or commission original paintings.
Lori’s work has been published by Harper Collins, Cambridge University Press, Providence Publishing, and Eakins Press. In addition to illustration work, Lori spent a number of years painting traditional oil and watercolor portraits. Since 2005 she has focused on creating more symbolic portraits. She calls these paintings “Life Cycle Portraits”, because they include stories, memories and images that are more symbolic representations of the person’s life or the event. These paintings have been greatly influenced by early American quilts, medieval Ketubot and manuscripts. Lori’s Life Cycle Portrait’s have evolved to include both religious and secular themes, as well as, personal symbols. She has been commissioned to create many paintings for life cycle events, such as births, B’nai Mitzvot, graduation, weddings, anniversaries and even a 100th birthday celebration.
