Lori Pitten Jenkins' watercolors can best be described as intense.  Color and contrast play an integral part in her work.  Being a Florida native is reflective in her subject matters highlighting the unique treasures that Florida has to offer.Lori grew up in Indialantic, Florida.  She has a studio art degree from Florida State University.  It wasn't until 2005 that she revisited these artistic talents.  She took a watercolor class at the local museum and was hooked.  She began entering shows and selling her art as an experiment in justifying her passion.  Now these passions have transformed her.  Lori states, "I want my paintings to grab your attention immediately.  I overexaggerate the intensity but try to keep it real.  I am not drawn to any one subject matter, I simply paint what inspires me at the time.  The WOW factor is my ultimate goal."Lori has been accepted into several International Watercolor Competitions including the American Watercolor Society and the National Watercolor Society.  She received awards in both venues.  She is a signature member of American Watercolor Society, National Watercolor Society, Florida Watercolor Society, and Southern Watercolor Society.  Lori's publications include Watercolor Artist 2014 , The Art of Watercolour 2014 and 2017,  Splash,  The Best of Watercolor 2016, and Pratiques des Arts2015.
