Lori Brunner


Art provokes the unknown, the unspoken. Research uncovers the answers that need attention.

Lori Brunner Art (LBA) creates timely releases of original art, as well as resources related to the intersection of interiors and art.
Working in a predominately abstract style, my compositions are focused on texture, shape, line, and contrast. Some pieces project an abundance of energy, while others remain unobtrusive and delicate. I like to experiment with scale. Quiet compositions may command a room with their physical dimensions, and smaller works may exhibit intensity and authority with vibrant colors.
