Trellis Home is honored to be able to share with you work from artist and friend Lori Warner.

A master printer in monotype, Lori’s work often references the landscape that surrounds her. This is particularly apparent in the vibrant colors and reflective qualities of her Bahamas monotypes. While an undergraduate she studied Photography as a double major, graduating with the highest honors from RISD and receiving the award for Excellence in Printmaking

Since her childhood, Lori has spent the majority of her winters in the Islands of the Bahamas. In 2009 she partnered with Staniel Cay Yacht Club to begin a series of printmaking workshops held throughout the year. During these workshops, she also creates a series of her own work. Lori’s original monotypes and limited edition giclee prints have steadily developed a strong following. In this series she captures the essence of the Islands through the colors of the water, flora and coral island landscape.

We are thrilled to be featuring four of her fabulous giclee prints from her Bahamaian series. These prints all complement each other in beautiful blue hues featuring seascapes inspired by the tranquil Carribbean. You can really fill a wall with some interesting visual images by mixing and matching two, three or even four together. Go on, dive in!
