This sweet painting is by artist Lori Klocek. Born and raised in Santa Cruz, California, Lori's talent for art emerged at a young age when she began drawing, painting and sculpting. While in college at the Academy of Art University in San Francisco, Lori started a career in Graphic Design but didn't truly feel she had found her calling until she transferred into the Animation/Illustration program at San Jose State University. Shortly before graduating Lori began her tenure at Pixar Animation Studios where she worked on the Oscar and Annie Award winning animated films The Incredibles, Ratatouille and Wall-E. Currently as a freelance artist Lori is devoting her time to ImageBlock Studio, an artistic cooperative between herself and her husband Noah, where she strives to bring imagination, skill and passion to all their projects.
