It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to our newest sponsor, Lori Portka! It's actually with delight that I share her with you, because that is exactly what Lori is all about... her mission: happiness through art! In Lori's words "I am a mixed-media artist, illustrator, counselor and educator. All of my work (so far!) is joyful and light-hearted, a reminder of the sweetness in life. In my shop I sell original collage paintings, archival matted prints (giclees), greeting cards, handmade Blessing Angels and frame-able art cards. My vision is to uplift the world through the intrinsic power of art, bringing love, healing and happiness to those who are open to it."
I met Lori in the first e-course of In the Fishbowl and was instantly drawn to her positive and loving outlook on life. Her happiness is contagious, and it's represented beautifully in every vibrant and colorful piece she creates. You can imagine how much I enjoy having that wonderful energy spreading through my blog through her sweet and happy banner in the sidebar! I must say that in compiling images for this spotlight, I went through each one in her shop... and she's prolific! I feel energized, lightened and yes, happy just from viewing her work. Imagine what it would be like to have one hanging in your yoga corner, living room, or child's bedroom... what a gift.
Thank you Lori, so thrilled to have you here!
