Many of her works display expressive emotion and guide the eye across the canvas using contrasting colors. Her paintings include a seemingly endless amount of detail that the viewer will never take their eyes off of. The creative process Lordi uses involves a predominantly improvised method of having a blank canvas, acrylic paints, and the raw expression and emotion to create something out of nothing.

It was a crowd-pleasing night of many of the band’s “greatest hits” with only a couple brief lulls in energy when certain... Read More
