Get to Know

My name is Lori Bergmann and as a Visual Art major and former graphic designer, I love to experiment and use a wide variety of artistic mediums and techniques in my work. I've had over 390 craft projects, jewelry designs, and articles published in numerous publications such as Better Homes and Gardens, Crafts/Paper Crafts, Creative Jewelry, and Bead Trends magazines. I was an Honorable Mention Winner in the 2009 Bead Star contest in their Glass category and wrote a lampworking tutorial that was featured in The Flow magazine.

I've also written a book on Creative Painting, teach workshops, and design and consult for several companies. Add all the above activities to a full-scale DIY home remodel job and raising two teenagers, two dogs and a fish with my wonderful hubby, and I guess you could say I lead a pretty crazy, but creative life!
