During the art process, Cozen-Geller looks to capture the
emotions of the heart and mind and places them into visual
form within space. "This process is a kinetic one for

By freezing emotions and placing them into concrete form,
I can then sit back and view the strength and meaning that
now lies within the piece that has materialized as art.
are several components that merge together to form my work.
The dimensions of the piece along with the color and finish
represent the power of the emotion that the piece was born

is determined by the nature of the emotions that are being
represented. It is as if the emotions themselves dictate
the specifications of how the art is developed."

education includes a BA from the University of Southern
California. She lives in Venice, California and works
out of her Venice studio. Lori's first work

emotions are universal to all man kind. Human beings share
the same emotional palette even though each of us has a
differing set of life circumstances. The energy of life
is the fuel that ignites my passion to express."
