“All who are gifted artisans among you shall come and make all that the Lord has commanded:”
Exodus 35:10 (NKJV)
After being told in middle school that “art just may not be for you”, Lora set art aside and believed it to be true. However, she always found a way to incorporate art as much as possible in her everyday life, including chosen career fields.
In June 2017, Lora was diagnosed with breast cancer and life as she knew it ceased to exist. An outlet was needed to express her emotions and trauma, but she couldn’t quite pinpoint the healthiest and most productive route.
Lora began attending Impact Church in Scottsdale, AZ on Easter Sunday 2018. Not long afterward, Pastor Travis spoke on the Parable of the Talents. He invited members to take $20 from the church and return after six weeks to give back the $20 plus whatever additional money was earned. Lora seized the opportunity and tried her hand at art again ~ after 28 long years! Thus, H_Originals was created.
Throughout Lora’s art journey she has felt the presence of the Holy Spirit and felt God lay things on her heart that have manifested in her work. She knows her calling is to be an artist for the glory of God and to help grow His kingdom.
Lora has two children: Carter, 23 and Kacie, 18. She loves spending time with them, reading and, of course, making art!
