Lori Mitchell was born and raised in Marietta GA. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design. Lori finds inspiration in old illustrations, children's tales, and anything whimsical.
In 1998, she discovered folk art, and fell in love with the charm and nostalgia that this field embraces. Lori creates pieces that take people back to the magical years of childhood.
In designing, Lori starts off with an idea, but as she sculpts, characters begin to define their own personality. Lori is known for her exaggerated proportions and expressions...and every piece must have crazy socks!
Lori's original creations are entirely handmade with papier mache and hand painted. Her unique pieces have become so popular with collectors that she started working with ESC & Co to allow her creations to be mass produced in order to provide her pieces as an affordable and accessible gift for you and your loved ones.
We work closely with ESC & Co and have a continual ordering basis set up with the company. Please peruse the entire Lori Mitchell collection. Pieces that are not currently in stock in our store are available as "Pre Order." We work with ESC to provide your pre order piece to you within 2 weeks.
