Lore Spivey is an award winning book and paper artist born in Jacksonville, North Carolina. She has lived in Alabama, California, and Osaka, Japan. Her interest in art began at a young age drawing plants and animals from her grandmother’s garden. The ornate yet serene gardens of Japan also had an influence. Nature continues to be a major theme in her work, along with current events. Lore is a self-taught artist, and holds degrees in theatre education from both Universities of North Carolina at Asheville and Greensboro. She employs scenic design elements extensively in her three dimensional books.
