Friends! I am so excited to introduce you to my verrrry talented friend, the Luminous Lori Siebert, and also offer a Gudrun Sjoden GIVEAWAY (which you can find at the close of this post!) In other words, this whole post is a goodie basket!
Here she delightfully is, a sister Gudrun Sjoden ambassador, as well as a very successful and talented artist, designer, maker, and teacher! Just look at her LOVE!
When asked to define her artistic style, Lori Siebert says that she likes to be a bit of a chameleon. Constantly experimenting with different styles and mediums feeds her insatiable curiosity. She has a very whimsical design sense and loves to play with color to give each collection that and she designs its own unique personality. She started taking private art lessons at the young age of 7 and continued to study art throughout high school. This lead to a degree in graphic design from the University of Cincinnati. She opened her own design firm just 3 years out of college in 1987. Her firm, Olika Studios, has developed branding and design programs for influential clients such as Target, Bath & Body Works, Nickelodeon and Universal Studios.
Lori began the art licensing arm of her business 15 years ago and now works with several top manufactures in the gift and home decor industry. Her client list includes Demdaco, Creative Co-op, Studio M, Lang and many more. Her licensed products have been sold through many key retailers and small gift shops throughout the United States and Canada. She has been featured in “Where Women Create” and “Where Women Create Business.” She is also the co- founder of ArtBizJam and ArtBizJam Abundance, which provide helpful business tips and networking opportunities for women artists. And, she hosts and teaches at several creative retreats each year including her first European retreat in southern France in 2019 and will be repeating it again in 2022. One of her greatest honors is being an amdassador for Gudrun Sjoden, her favorite fashion and home textile designer.
She creates everyday in her home studio in Kentucky...sewing, sculpting, drawing, painting meeting with clients and developing concepts with her very talented design team. Her husband, Steve, is her business partner and she has two children... Kenzie (who is a designer and works closely with her mom at Olika) and Tanner (who is a mechanical engineer.) She also has two grandchildren who light up her life!!!
