Lori McNee has been named "Twitter Powerhouse" by the Huffington Post, she is ranked as one of the Top 100 most powerful women on Twitter, and her presence on social media sites and the blogosphere is astounding so it is a wonder that Lori has not only time to paint, but has an active career selling her work through several galleries. The social media interest and popularity came along quite by accident explains Lori, but the painting has been around since she was a child.
Lori has always been painting, trying to capture nature on paper since she couldn't actually catch the birds that flew into her yard as a little girl. Her drawing developed more with some guidance in high school and college, but painting was frustrating as academia pushed her towards abstraction as her preference was always traditional realism. So, Lori pursued her interest in realism on her own, looking for artists whose work she admired and following their workshops. Over the years, along with cultivating her studies through books and DVDs, Lori has developed her own style and following as an artist, and she still works nature as her primary subject.
