  • Lori Earley was born and raised in Rye, New York in a very unartistic household. Despite not being exposed to the arts, Earley's vivid imagination and her creativity somehow continued to flourish from within throughout the years... essentially developing her artistic style in a “vacuum” so to speak. This allowed Earley to develop her own, purely unique style, untouched and uninfluenced by anything or anyone else.

    Earley studied at the School of Visual Arts in New York City, graduating at the very top of her class with a BFA. When she emerged on the art scene years later, Earley's paintings and drawings were so unique that she was quickly acclaimed as an exceptional new talent, praised for her rare, signature authentic portraiture. Her stylized, elongated subjects echoed Mannerist elements and the dramatic lighting of the Baroque period. Her eccentric, accentuated realism drew attention from galleries, established artists and collectors, which immediately propelled Earley to the forefront of a burgeoning art movement. Her recognition as a leading female contemporary master painter grew internationally and moved Earley into the celebrated realm of solo exhibitions in New York City, Seattle, Los Angeles and London. “In an art movement that has managed to juggernaut to such a size and scope that it encompasses a virtual golden age of artistic talent, it takes a lot for a particular artist to stand out as a shining star of an art scene, yet that is what painter Lori Earley has managed to do in a relatively short time” - Hi*Fructose Collected 2 book wrote.

    At the height of her success unfortunately, Earley was diagnosed with a very rare genetic connective tissue disorder called Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome. After almost having lost her life from the syndrome, Earley was then forced to take an unwanted hiatus from her art and spent the next several years having many corrective surgeries. Years later, Earley then began a specialized, personal physical therapy program at the Mayo Clinic and with the help of a special team of doctors, she finally was able to begin her return to the art world. With her never-ending fighting spirit, Earley's strength and determination continues to be an inspiration for others. Click on the link below to read Earley’s story and how she reclaimed her career.
