Hello! My name is Lori Damiano. I am an illustrator, animator, & educator based in Portland, Oregon. I earned a BFA in Media Studies: Film / Video from the University of California, San Diego and an MFA in Experimental Animation from CalArts. I currently teach in the Animated Arts Program at the Pacific Northwest College of Art. I worked as the Animation Department Chair for the California State Summer School for the Arts for the past 9 years. I'm also a member of the Resource Council for Portland's Independent Publishing Resource Center.

I love making things by hand. Some of the things I like to make with my hands are paintings, animations, zines, comics, films, embroidery, quilts, gardens, miniature sweaters, and pies. I am thankful to have been given opportunities to share my films and artwork all over the US and internationally. Most recently I have been touring with a traveling experimental animation screening I programmed called Time Farmers. Please let me know if you are interested in bringing Time Farmers to your community!
I'd love to hear from you any old time. You can always reach me HERE.
