Who is Lori Mitchell?

Lori C. Mitchell ™ was born and raised in Marietta, Georgia. She is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design where she was introduced to 3D sculpting and the wonders of claymation and studied with an instructor who was a master of puppetry technique.

These influences sparked her love for simplicity and the wonder of childhood. Lori finds inspiration in old illustrations, children’s tales, and anything whimsical. In 1998, she discovered folk art and fell in love with the charm and nostalgia that this field embraces. Lori creates pieces that take people back to the magical years of childhood.

In designing, Lori starts off with an idea, but as she sculpts, the characters begin to define their own personality.

Lori is known for her whimsy, colorful, and skinny-legged people with striped socks!

Mitchell focuses on subject-based collections. She creates about 30 new designs each year that range in size from 5 to 13 inches tall and fall into seasonal and themed categories.
