About Lori

artist Lori McKinnon

My name is Lori McKinnon and I am an artist

With my husband, Shawn, I also own and operate Artist Haven AMI which is an art studio/consignment gift shop with over 60 artists. I was born and raised in New England before moving to a small barrier island in Florida called Anna Maria Island. I always feel incredibly blessed being surrounded by an abundance of inspiration here... it is my happy place!

I have been a very creative soul for as long as I can remember. Over the years, I have gone from a little girl who loved coloring books and playing Spirograph to creating glass beads and pendants made from molten glass. These days I consider myself a mixed media artist and create intuitively from my heart. I'm greatly inspired by color, nature, the Universe and all of its intricate relationships.

Each piece of art that I create tells a story. Within these stories, whether on canvas, paper, wood or other substrates, I hope you find the joy and inspiration that I found while creating it

I absolutely love what I do and I love sharing it with you! I send you my deepest gratitude and love for your support in this journey of mine. Another way I like to give back is through creating inspiring YouTube videos which you can find here:  Lori McKinnon Art on YouTube
