Lore Eckelberry 

Lore Eckelberry is an international contemporary artist based in Los Angeles, California. Her paintings are featured in Museums, galleries and private collections throughout the United States, Japan, Italy, England, Germany, Spain, Korea, Chile, Thailand, Taiwan, Holland, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico.

A love of travel and curiosity about other cultures has led Lore to visit many countries. She has also lived in Mexico and Italy for some time and frequently returns to Japan.

Lore’s painting style has evolved from early 20th century inspired to totally distinctly contemporary. Each spontaneous, explosive painting displays her love of strong, expressive emotions. An emphasis on color creates a modern and innovative strength in art expression.  Lore’s use of color in portraits evoke an intimate side of the subjects she paints, reflecting their inner soul.

Artist Statement


I strongly believe that the soul of a man can be reflected and recorded in art.


I like to convey an emotion that comes directly from the subject I am painting.

It is not my intention to create a mirror image of the person, their sex, or their likeness.

What I want is to give a sense of feeling and emotion through the color and shape of my art.


I love to travel. I am very interested in other countries and their cultures. People, colors, traditions, religion, and landscapes fascinate me. It is the sensation of the emotion that I perceive in a culture or the people around me that I wish to communicate in my paintings.


I love people and animals. It is the love and admiration that I have for them that inspires me to keep on painting.
