Lori attended the University of Delaware where she studied Veterinary Pre Medicine and Animal Bio-sciences. In 1993, she met the man of her dreams and set off on an unforgettable journey. Lori, her husband and their animals embarked on a 17 -year road trip where their 40’ RV became their ‘home away from home”.
After completing two careers in diverse fields, She followed her heart and began to paint. With no formal training, Lori’s passion for life and animals was the only inspiration needed to create her art that can be seen all over the world.
The Emirate of Abu Dhabi proudly displays artwork by the award winning Lori Rowe as does The Millennium Hotel, The Chrome Rooster restaurant, two Book publications and various calendars and greeting cards.
Lori’s medium of choice is watercolor with a hint of acrylic snuck into the mix to create texture.
Although the majority of her philanthropy revolves around helping animals in need, Lori is also involved in fundraising for foster children. In her spare time, she and her husband can be found driving transportation legs for Cruzin’ Critters where they have helped over two dozen animals make the transition from kill shelters to no-kill facilities.
Lori and her husband have finally established roots in North Chicago where they share their 109 year-old house with their beloved pets: Maggie (18), Sox (5), Finnegan (9 1/2 months) and Cooper (8 1/2 months).
"God gave me the gift of painting and the love of animals and humans. It is my job to do the best I can with that talent. Its a privilege to paint for the charities I believe in." - Lori
