Growing up with an artist mother, Lorrie Lane and a musician father, Liz has been around art from day one. Liz moved to the Big Apple and worked in the fashion industry, but realized the south was the most conducive atmosphere to her creativity and returned to sweet home Birmingham, Alabama. Liz paints using watercolors, oils and any thing else she can get her hands on in her studio in back of Liz Lane Gallery. She creates a series of fashion paintings as well as abstract floras, landscapes, figures and non-representational work. Her abstract and landscape paintings are inspired by color, line, and depth. Using layers of oil paints and mixing soft smooth areas with more intense, textured areas, she strives to achieve a balance between calmness and chaos. Liz is collected in many homes and businesses nationally and now owns Liz Lane Gallery.
Lorrie Lane is an oil painter living in Tuscaloosa, AL. She paints landscapes, florals, portraits, and occasional sheep, as well as other subjects. Currently she is using a combination technique of palette knife and brush, allowing for both glossy texture and realistic detail.
Lorrie Lane was born in upstate New York and graduated from Smith College in 1983. She has lived and painted in Tuscaloosa for over 30 years. Her work has evolved from pen and ink and watercolor to oil painting, and she has regularly exhibited at numerous shows and galleries in the Southeast.

Sister Art Pottery
JILL LINDSEY is a potter that works from a home studio in Homewood, Al. She has been making pottery for about 10 years and loves participating in local art shows.
To achieve a unique look for every piece of pottery I use various clay colors, textures, and glazes. Pottery is made either on a wheel (wheel-thrown) or by the slab technique (handbuilt). All of my pottery is handbuilt. Starting with a slab of clay, each piece is formed and designed by hand.
