Fine Art -Artists at work in the "Heart of Matlacha"

Original Fine Art & Jewelry- Voted Best Art Gallery in Matlacha 

​Lora is a Canadian Snowbird and lives in Ontario, Canada, and Cape Coral, Florida.

She has been studying and worked under the tutelage of well known Canadian Sculptor, Sandy Cline, for the past four years. 

Working in a three dimensional medium has Lora constantly watching wildlife in motion in order to capture the movement of the creature in stone. Lora is constantly acquiring and carving soapstone from all over the world as each area's stone has unique characteristics. Lora is currently focusing her larger sculptures to represent the endangered and protected wildlife species of Florida's Gulf Coast. All carvings are bathed in a beeswax finish to nourish and protect the stone. This technique was used by Egyptian sculptors to preserve soapstone carvings before being placed in the Pharaoh's tombs.
