Testimonials & Reviews

I highly recommend Lori as a presenter and artist in residence. I was drawn to her presentations and in class workshops as she was entrancing. She is excellent at managing large groups and different personalities. Her pacing, information and fun spirit keep even the busiest children focused on her and their learning. Lauralee Edgell, Principal, 8th Ave Elementary
Lori made the unit come alive! Is was a festive, active and unique experience for the children. They learned more about each other and how people around the globe can be united through celebrations. Lori's work really supported the children being introduced to the attitudes of appreciation and tolerance. Ms Richards, Teacher, Brockton Preparatory School, North Vancouver
