A native of Brooklyn, Lori received her Bachelors degree in Nursing from the State University of New York.
She dabbled in glass in the 1970s but left it to work as a nurse and raise her family.
Moving to Georgia in the 1990s, she resumed her artwork, studying painting, ceramics and sculpture at several southeast art centers before rediscovering glass in 2002.
She has since become a full time artist and traveled across the united states studying with prominent masters in the glass world while maintaining a teaching studio in Dunwoody, Georgia.
Her work can be found in private collections across the US as well as in Brazil.
She is currently represented at the Corning Museum of Glass Glass Market and Gallery in Corning New York.
