Using paint, pastel and mixed media, Lora Whelan explores human perception and experience through her artworks. "I am self-taught, and find the process as rewarding as the finished artwork." She adds, "Quite often the materials I'm working with will show me something about the subject I'm exploring in unexpected and exciting ways." Shows have included: Pinned to the Walls, 2015; Islands, 2017; Endangered/Extinct, 2018; Angels & Furies, 2019.
Whelan lives year-round in Eastport, Maine, with her husband and two cats. She works as the assistant editor and publisher of the Washington County, Maine, newspaper, The Quoddy Tides.
