Lori Putnam Bio

A native of Nashville, Tennessee, Lori Putnam travels all over the world, painting small to medium-sized plein air sketches and finished works. She also creates large-scale paintings in her studio located in nearby Franklin, Tennessee. Prior to becoming a full-time artist in 2005, Lori owned and managed a successful graphic design agency for 13 years. Although Lori has had an interest in drawing and other art forms since she was very young, she considers herself self-taught, having studied independently as an adult, with many of the nation’s best painters. Among them, Dawn Whitelaw, Quang Ho, Scott Christensen, and Kim English are a few she considers her most influential. In 2008 and 2009, she traveled to Italy for more than seven months with the sole intention of study, and growth. During this time she painted almost 200 pieces from the southeastern Adriatic coastline to the northeastern Italian Riviera and many towns in between. Her intense work during this period brought a greater maturity to the paintings she creates today. She enjoys sharing this growth with her students across the U.S., the Caribbean, and in Europe.

Lori is a member of, and has exhibited with, many respected organizations including the Salmagundi Club in New York City, the Oil Painters of America, the California Art Club, Plein Air Artists of Colorado, and the American Impressionists Society. She served as Show Chair for AIS in 2011 and is currently Vice President of the organization. Additionally, Lori participates annually in several juried and invitational plein air events, and recently won awards in Colorado, California, Wyoming, Florida, Georgia, and Ireland. Her work is in the permanent collection at The Academy Art Museum in Easton, Maryland, the Jack Warner Collection, the collection of Plein Air Magazine, and in private and corporate collections, and galleries worldwide. Featured in numerous issues of American Art Collector Magazine, and most recently, Plein Air Magazine, Lori is recognized as one of the finest American Impressionists of our time. She was among those chosen as faculty for Plein Air Magazine’s 1st Annual Plein Air Convention in Red Rocks near Las Vegas in April 2012.
