Lori Franz is a recent transplant to mid-town Sacramento, relocating here after a 30 year career as a management science professor at the University of Missouri in Columbia MO. Retirement has allowed her the time and flexibility to pursue her lifelong interest in painting. Her training in mathematics and physics have proven invaluable in guiding both composition and content on her canvas. Her painting is paired with her burgeoning interest in photography which allows inspiration and collection of a broad range of varied subject matter begging to find interpretation via water color or acrylic medium. Her lack of formal training allows her to paint from intuition, without the constraints of formal expectations. Her current portfolio is an organic mix of experimentation and exploration.
