Lois is a talented artist working in several different mediums.
She has received numerous awards and recognitions across the
United States and her work has become highly collectible.
She is widely known for her realistic wildlife paintings on
pressed leaves. They are each unique and individualized. She has
a knack for taking an already beautiful piece of nature and
recreating it into amazing works of art.
Her watercolor and oil paintings are so realistic detailed - by
letting your imagination guide you, you can almost smell the
aroma of the flowers on canvas, or hear the painted birds
chirping a sweet melody.
Another of her talents can be found in the intricate detailed of
her Scrimshaw pieces. Each piece is etched with gorgeous flowers
or wildlife on either old piano keys, mammoth ivory,
mother-of-pearl or horn. She created some incredibly unique
pieces that have been turned into fashion jewelry and bookmarks.
She also has old piano keys, scrimed and carefully matted and
framed for your home.
