Lora Gill is an artist and librarian who lives in Bowling Green, Kentucky. During her time as a grad student at the University of Kentucky, she worked in the Special Collections Department of UK’s library, where she was exposed to some of the original plates of Audubon’s Birds of America. From here a deeper appreciation of the avian world combined with her desire to explore the nature of human femininity led her to create her Featherbrain series.
Lora is a self-taught artist who has been creating works for the past twenty years. She has been a part of two of Lexington’s public art projects, the Dynamic Doors and the Book Benches. Her bench is currently on display in front of the University Press of Kentucky. She has shown her artwork in various venues and is continuing to grow and expand her Featherbrain series. She works primarily with acrylics, but also enjoys illustration and mixed media.
