Little Truths

For Lori Roberts, of Little Truths Studio, painting is a way of celebrating all the little truths this world has to offer, everyday miracles worthy of celebration: the immense potentiality held within a tiny acorn, the cycle of the moon, the subtle meaning expressed in a poem or a simple act of kindness that changes someone's outlook. She likes to explore our profound connection to the natural world, to the universe and to each other.

She picked up a brush for the first time in 2012 at the age of 40 after a compulsion grew to explore this creative calling. She paints primarily in watercolor and gouache in her tiny studio in the lush green landscape outside Portland, Oregon, where she lives with her husband, daughter, and too many deer to keep track of.
