Lori was first drawn to paper cutting because of the "insanity of it". Her attraction to this expressive art form is the simplicity. "One thing that I love is that all you need is a piece of paper, an X-acto knife, and a whole lot of patience." Lori invests about ten weeks worth of work on each piece in an effort to replicate her subjects' one-of-a-kind prints in painstaking detail. "When people see my work hanging on their wall, I hope it serves as a reminder to enjoy the little things in their day and to appreciate the uniquely beautiful people in their lives."
