About the Artist

Artist Statement

Through my use of color and texture, I create raw artistic pieces that reveal a sense of depth and beauty. My paintings feature a multitude of layers and colors, the two components of art I am most passionate about. I share what I love about art with you by composing paintings that engage the eyes and offer something new every time you look at them.

Artist Bio

Colors and textures are what move Lori Messler, a self-taught artist who is known locally for transforming peoples’ homes into unique works of art. Since childhood, Lori has always been involved in some form of art, including painting, floral design, jewelry-making and fashion.

Born in East Windsor, NJ, Lori moved to Atlanta in 1991. In 2003, after engaging in a personal home painting project, she realized her professional purpose in life was to be an artist. Shortly thereafter, she started Art de Faux, her multi-faceted business that includes decorative finishes, fine art and interior design.

Lori is fulfilled by the act of creating, something that also serves as a primary means for her self-expression. Featuring multiple layers and colors, her paintings are raw artistic pieces that reveal a sense of depth and beauty. She has been commissioned by many local residents to create these original paintings for their homes and businesses, including the owner of KoKo Ri Boutique. Her artwork has been shown at Demure Boutique and Underground Atlanta and she has contributed pieces to various charity auctions.

With regard to decorative finishes, Lori has worked her magic on countless residential and commercial projects throughout the Southeast. Her repertoire includes timeless finishes, aged techniques, plaster alternatives and metallic embellishments, to name a few. One of her many noted projects is Café Dupri, the Atlanta restaurant owned by music mogul Jermaine Dupri.
