Lora Moran Collins
I graduated from MICA as a mixed fine art major and, although it took several years, landed my dream job as a model maker at the Smithsonian. I absolutely loved making exhibit elements for the various museums! I specialized in portrait mannequins and sculpting animals, including two of the running stagecoach horses at the Postal Museum and the touchable sea lions at the Zoo. I retired from being the model shop manager in 2019 and have fully embraced the retired life in Churchton! In addition to being a founding member of the Arts Lab, am also an active member of the Muddy Creek Artists Guild and currently it's president.
Now that I have time to play I am exploring a wide range of painting styles in oil paint, from realistic portraits and moody subjects to landscapes and impressionistic styles. My recent work has been abstract explorations of color in a mixed media format. I also like to sculpt the figure, although I'm still figuring out in what medium works best. I have made small figures in wax and clay, but maybe I'll try wire next.
