Lori Ferguson is a Winnipeg based artist with a long history of creative expression. For many years, Lori 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, combined with a pursuit of excellence, has lead her to expect that her work will communicate her thoughts and ideals to her community.
Lori has worked with a variety of mediums throughout her art career, such as acrylic, collage and mixed media. Always one to push boundaries, test limits and see how far imagination can take her, she likes to keep her options open to ensure her creative expression will not be limited or boxed in. Currently, however, Lori has chosen to use mainly oil paint as her medium of expression as it provides a wonderful opportunity for texture and colour in her work.
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 loves to position herself to learn from the best professional artists she can find.
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. Having completed her first major exhibition, “Glimpses of Humanity” in April 2019 she has begun to throw herself into her work in preparation for future and upcoming exhibitions.
