Souls made of stories.jpg

Stories are a universal language that connect people in a way that surpasses language and cultural barriers. Words and images are tools for creating those connections, for moving past the barriers, to creating the doors in walls that we build.

Dori Laine has always loved a good story; how it brings people to together when they share the laughter of a comedy, the anticipation of a kiss, the grief of a death, and the victory when an underdog overcomes their challenges.

Dori uses a paintbrush to capture a snapshot of a story, to send it out into the world and make it tangible, whether it be with her inspiring word art, her soothing landscapes, or her captivating photography.

Dori swims in her emotions, giving the rest of us permission to feel ours.
