Crossing Bridges Outreach Coordinator
Lorel was born with an urge to create. After over 25 years of working with her hands and successfully marketing her art through galleries, gift shops and trade shows, her passion is to now share her love of the arts with others. For Lorel, being part of an organization that helps reach those that may not have the chance to create or realize the benefits of art in their lives is extremely rewarding. She enjoys finding innovative ways to improve or expand the outreach program which helps to create opportunities for other artists. Also important is finding time to work on her own artwork, teaching and mentoring others. While Lorel draws, paints, creates clay sculptures, murals, mixed media, and installations, she continues to appreciate all things art.
