Loriann Signori is a painter of place and luminosity. Her work is based on traditional methods defined by colorist tendencies, aiming for continual transformation. Her paintings consistently are an emotional interpretation of time and place. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts from the Swain School of Design and her Master of Fine Arts at American University, but the real work began outdoors and in the studio. Signori’s talent has been showcased in galleries and museums worldwide, demonstrating a diversity of mediums. Her work is included in private and corporate collections in the US and abroad, including PNC Bank headquarters, Development Finance International, DC, Manilla, Nairobi, New Delhi, Brussels, Keller and Heckman, Washington DC., and Pensa Museum (Russia). Currently, she is represented by Warm Springs Gallery in Warm Springs, VA.
