Lori Anne Dickerman will be the Artist of the Month at The Hive in downtown Cañon City for the month of September. Lori’s work will be displayed at The Hive on First Friday, September 6 from 5:00-7:00pm and throughout the month. Be sure to stop by on First Friday and see her wonderful art and to chat with the artist herself!
Lori is a multi-media artist who retired after 33 years at an engineering firm and is honing her long-lost skills in art. She loves to experiment and try new things, media, and styles. She got her degree in Commercial Art in 1996 while working as a Technical Illustrator for this firm. Her last 17 years, however, were in Computer Networking and IT work before retirement in 2018.
Lori relocated to Cañon City in 2008 with plans for retirement and to be closer to her grandchildren. She has received several awards for her paintings since retiring . These awards were won in watercolor, acrylic and illustrative. She is loving this new chapter in her life through painting and spending time with family and friends.
Lori started a local Plein Air group in April of 2018 with two other ladies in preparation for Paint the Town in Florence, CO because she had never Plein Air painted before. She won two patron awards in that show and sold one painting. Her group, Plein Air Colours, can be found on Facebook HERE. The group has grown to over 20 members.
