Lori Blaylock, Billings Member Since August 2008 Artist Statement My name is Lori Blaylock and I currently live and work in Billings, Montana. I've been an artist since I could pick up a pencil and make a mark. I've never wanted to do or be anything else.
I was accepted to Minneapolis College of Art & Design after high school, but chose to stay close to family so, I got my degree in Art from Montana State University Billings where I studied with some incredible working artists. I have concentrations in drawing, watercolor and ceramics and I still work in those mediums. In addition, I also create one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces and when I need a little whimsy, I make humorous and sometimes odd art dolls or "soft sculptures".
It took me a long time to accept the label "artist". I think it's a honor that must be earned. You can't wake up one day and call yourself an artist. You have to work for it like any other profession. A couple of years ago, I realized that I had been working at for nearly 35 years, so I decided to give myself a break and say, "Yes, I'm an artist."
The originals for many of the pieces you see here on the Imagekind site are also available for purchase. If you are interested in an original work, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org. (I offer layaway terms as well).
In addition, I currently show at local venues and host local shows. If you'd like to know more about what I'm up to, plus find a little inspiration yourself, please LIKE and SHARE my FaceBook page at:
