Lori Knight is a mixed-media artist whose work incorporates vintage photos, treasures found, mixed papers, acrylics, oil pastels, and more to convey a variety of nostalgic stories. Her artwork began as a form of self-expression and family research as she tried to preserve her mother’s wild memories and stories about family, and the quirky, humorous nature of the work is often a direct reaction to those stories. While family, historical references, relics, and ideas from the past remain her primary topics for inspiration, Lori Knight’s art also features non-fiction ideas, double meanings, and funny anecdotes — all with an ephemeral, heirloom, shabby-chic twist.
Along with creating her own artwork, Lori Knight, along with her husband Eric, is a co-owner of Knight Visions Studio Gallery. They currently focus their efforts on custom framing, but they have been selling, promoting, marketing, and framing art in the South Snohomish County area since 1987. Custom framing and art consultations are by appointment only at her design space within Arts Umbrella, within Country Village in Bothell, Washington.
