About the Artist
I am an artist, healer, Florida state-certified teacher, and creativity coach, guiding teens and adults through personal journeys of self-discovery and, often, discovery of their own creative talents. My passion to create innovative mixed-media art and photography – and to help others bring out their own inner artists - has led me to teach in NYC and South Florida schools and community spaces for 18 years.
Whether finding my own inner-expression in art, or helping my students do the same, I try always to offer a positive, energetic perspective.
I’ve been pursuing my own artistic muse since early-childhood. Later in life, I discovered that artistic expression could be a tool to heal. In college, I used art to work through the anger and pain of my Mom's death. Later on, after the difficult birth of my daughter, I used art to sort through the emotional challenges and creative shutdown that followed. It was then that I was affected most profoundly by its power to heal. And it was then that I started teaching others how art could be used for healing in many stressful situations. And how it can actually promote inner happiness and well-being.

"Lori Arbel demonstrates compassion and forward thinking through her intricate art and perspective. From her project “Marks for Their Lives,” where each individual line represents the life of a child lost during the holocaust, to her work focused on spirituality and mental health, Lori makes a mark to heal wounds, uplift energies, and challenge stereotypes. She is truly an inspiration, touching the heart of communities around the world."
I watched your live video with you saying how beautiful the sounds of the bugs were and Ms. Arbel you honestly made me cry... I miss your beautiful energy which was very healing- and still is.
