Lorri Falterman is a sculptor, painter and fine art photographer. She was born in Ridgecrest, California and now lives and works in Mercer Island, Washington.
Lorri is currently working on a series called Indigo Monoprints which features silouhette prints of baroque musicians. She was inspired by her recent trip to Bali and by some block printed fabric that she brought back. She continues to sculpt busts and figures and is experimenting with glazes. She sculpts in clay, bronze, paper and also incorporates elements of glass and copper. In addition, she paints watercolors using a special technique that contains gesture and contour drawing along with bright unmixed watercolors. Her photographs strongly feature themes of rust, water and boats throughout the world. She has participated in juried and group shows in the Northwest. She has studied art in Seattle and France. Lorri’s work has received awards and commissions. She recently had a solo show at the Mercer Island Chamber Gallery. Lorri is a member of the Mercer Island Visual Arts League Gallery, Studio 103 in Seattle and a 2014 Artist Trust Edge graduate.
Lorri originally trained as a classical musician and produced some of the first period instrument Baroque operas to be heard in the Seattle area. Lorri has worked for small non-profit arts organizations as a staff member and board member in the Seattle area for the past 28 years to bring more art and music to the Northwest.
