Lori-Anne is a photographer and digital/mixed media artist. When told she was going blind 10 years ago due to Fuch's Dystrophy and Corneal Edema, Lori-Anne countered: "No, I am going to be a photographer/artist!"
Not one to give in to external circumstances easily, Lori-Anne determinedly found a way to pursue her passion. Lori-Anne’s photography has given her a new lifeline, a new career, and a venue to improve her self esteem. She shares, "I see the world from a different perspective due to my Double Corneal Transplants; while I still have eye issues and will never have the sight I once had, my camera and I work in harmony."
Lori-Anne lives with social anxiety and PTSD after a previous experience with domestic violence. She feels free and safe behind her camera. Her art is a way of processing the world around her and feeling good about life again with a newfound perspective and degree of separation. Lori-Anne says, "My dream is to one day work with a high-end designer and see my work go directly into people's homes."read more
