Home Grown by Lori Ann Sweet
It is hard to imagine a time when a pencil or paintbrush was not in my hands. From the beginning, I was destined to create and still pursue the same passion and drive to generate art. My paintings and drawings reflect my journey and interests throughout my lifetime. After receiving both an MFA and a BFA from the School of Visual Arts in New York City, I gained more conviction in my artwork. I developed an underlying motivation to create, which included a much greater appreciation for nature and wildlife. Recently my husband and I moved to Jacksonville, Florida, from Scranton, Pennsylvania. Our home is in the countryside, where I can own my art studio. Jacksonville has allowed me to engage in many visual arts organizations, illustrate Books, and pursue Plein-air Painting. I joined First Coast Plein Air Painters, the Jacksonville Coalition for Visual Arts, the St. Augustine Art Association, and the Pines & Palms Art Association. Through these organizations, I have exhibited in multiple galleries and won several awards. My track record includes teaching for twenty-two years at Penn State University, MMI Preparatory School, Diocese of Scranton, Suffolk Community College, and Ferris State University. I also have 30 years of illustrating for several prominent clients and newspaper syndicates. I’ve won an array of awards throughout the North Florida area. I Am a strong advocate for visual arts in the community and promoting women artist
