My motto is ‘Winging It”
Lorri-Marie, a self taught artist, has been a part of the Benicia Community for over 20 years. From managing First Street Café, to being a chef there…then she opened her own catering company, “some enchanted eatings’, then on to having an art gallery in the home she shares with her artist-husband Rob Jenkins.
After raising four boys, she found a lot of creative time on her hands. Being a woman of great ideas and little money, she chose ‘found object’ artwork.
Lorri-Marie started creating found object sculptures in 2004. She now finds great pleasure in mixed media collage work, fiber work and just playing with what other people consider ‘trash’.
She loves sharing her ideas, her supplies, and her studio with other playful artists. She finds that she is usually the student, not the teacher!
