Lori Early grew up down the street from an amusment park ub Rye, New York. She began drawing at a very young age, and was always intrigued by the unusual.
Lori received her Bachelor of fine arts degree from the school and visual arts, where she had studies with influential artists like Marshall Arisman and Steven Asseal. She received numerous awards and scholarships while in the school and was one of the few students in her graduating class to receive the Rhodes and presidential award for outstanding achievement.
In 2004, Lori Early began exhibiting her oil paintings. Since then. Her fine art career catapulted at an unusual fast pace. Her eerily beautiful art has been exhibited in galleries such as New Yor Cities Jonathan Levine Gallery and the Opera Gallery and the Californians Corpro Nason gallery.
Lori Early oil paintings are a unique combination of classical realistic rendering with a personal element of distortion. Their distortion is derived from her innate desire to render the world she feels as opposed to the world she sees before her. The figures she paints exist in their own esoteric realm and time, and each painting offers a glimpse into their anomalous world.
Here are couple more of Lori Early art works and illustrations :

Woodcut is a artistic technique in which an image is carved into the surface of a block of wood, with the printing parts remaining level while the non-printing parts are removed. The block is cut along the grain of the wood. In Europe beechwood was commonly used and in Japan cherry wood was used.
It did not originate in Japan as some people believe. It came originally from China and was later adopted by the West and Japan.
The most popularized form of woodcut Art is called Ukiyo-e. It originated in Japan and it is probably what you have seen. Ukiyo-e means: “pictures of the floating world”. More specifically Ukiyo-e is woodblock prints (or woodcuts) and paintings. They where popular between the 17th and the 20th centuries. Ukiyo-e were affordable because they could be mass-produced. They were, therefore, meant for people who were not wealthy enough to afford an original painting. The original subject of ukiyo-e was city life, in particular activities and scenes from the entertainment district.
This is probably one of the most famous Ukiyo-e’s. It is called “The Great Wave”. (Why do you look surprised?). Artist is Hokusai and it is part of his subscription series, “Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji,” completed between 1826 and 1833.
