Lord's paintings are a record and expression of her world. A "Plein
Air" artist by training, places she has painted include Brazil,
Italy and the Virgin Islands; Nevada, Utah and Oregon: Carmel, Gualala
and home in Livermore, California. Her greatest body of work is of her
area; the landscape, architecture, gardens, portraits and still-lives.
"My paintings can be subtle, direct or whimsical, of what ever
I feel is important to share. Usually it's a record of visual beauty,
sometimes I hint at ideas and concepts that are revealed in the painting
or in the title." Her watercolors are recognizable with their varied
compositions, color, light and dark.
