About Lori Whillier

I'm a growing artist, among other things. I've been teaching children in grades K-6 for over 20 years in the public school system. I taught various grades and worked as a Visual Arts specialist at Virginia Park School for 14 years. Working my entire career in arts based schools has helped me develop a deeper passion for the arts, specifically how they transform people and transcend time.

My next career move takes me out of the classroom but continuing to work with Edmonton Public as a Visual Arts Consultant. I will be creating supports for K-6 teachers for implementation of the new Provincial Arts Curriculum in the field of Visual Arts. I'm excited for this new role!

I'm married, mom to Grade 10 twin boys, we have a big handsome Bernese Mountain dog named Fergus, and a black purring machine named Crackie.

I love that I can bring my passion for the arts to a studio setting.

I hope your children will come and create with me!
