My name is Loree Schaeffer.
I grew up and raised my family in the pacific northwest, where there is an abundance of inspiration.
Watercolors is where my heart is, but I also studied graphics and design in college, along with many watercolor classes in order to elevate my skill set and broaden my creativity.
My process is to research then sketch, and after several renditions I paint the final watercolor.
I feel compelled to paint, and try things that interest me and allow me to express myself and share with others.
From the Columbia river gorge, To the Pacific ocean, to the lake we live by now.
I hope through my art to touch your emotions, memories, or just make you smile.
