Lori Bryant: Children's Book Maker

HOME
Lori Bryant / Laura J. Bryant at Fruitful Play

This website is a combination of new goals and future dreams. It is dedicated to the notion that a creative career is filled with FRUITFUL PLAY.

 

I began my artistic pursuits at the Maryland Institute College of Art where I studied painting, printmaking and sculpture. I have enjoyed illustrating children’s books for 20 years and feel grateful for an expressive outlet that is also a positive resource for kids. More recently, I took a hiatus to explore my own writing and to experiment with new illustration techniques. It was an amazing period of time that changed my entire approach to children’s books. I aspire to create stories that are deceptively simple and books that merge words and art into a seamless adventure. I enjoy experimenting with new mediums and techniques to find the perfect complement for each project. Most of all, I love the process of writing, tweaking, sketching and distilling until a picture book is elevated into a timeless treasure ~ Thank you for visiting my website.
