We received the most incredible gift from our best friends for our wedding. They hired Lori to create a painting at Rock Lake in Algonquin Park where we got married on September 27th 2014. Rock Lake is a place that both my husband and I have visited since child hood and holds so many treasured memories. It is also a place that dates back in history for me as my grandfather was a river driver through the lakes of Algonquin and my grandmother a cook in the Lumber camp where they met and married. Their names remain on the wall of the Algonquin Logging museum to this day so you can imagine how special Algonquin Park is to me and my family. Along with this incredible painting called 'Rugged Beauty' Lori sent a lovely letter about her experience of choosing the paintings location during her visit to Rock Lake and a DVD with the transistions of the painting coming alive. It is truly one of the most amazing gifts we have ever received to have an original painting created personally for us as husband and wife in a place that means so much to us. It was and will remain a heartfelt work of art hanging in our home. Thank you Lori for such a beautiful work of art. We will cherish it always :) we really look forward to collecting more of your work :) Todd and Kelly Diminie

Lori goes above and beyond! Not only was the artwork fantastic, but the little extras like writing a note to the bride and groom and including a CD made it extra special! Would definitely order another piece of art! Nancy

Very nice work - you do beautiful landscapes - have always been amazed by the Canadians, how they capture nature in their paintings.

Thank you Lori for your kind words about my art, it is so nurturing for the artist's spirit that besides our enthusiasm for painting somebody else feels the same way!, I checked out your paintings they are so beautiful I love them, and those line studies is my kind of graphics.

What a lovely journey you have been on and how nice of you to share it. I very much enjoyed viewing the photos of your paintings and everyone I saw found myself thinking I can't wait until you have a museum show so I can view all the originals. Everything I've seen of yours is wonderful. Congratulations!

Autumn Swamp has twice stopped me in my tracks on the way to the office in Metro Hall. It captures the true beauty of Algonquin Park. I feel the crispness of the air and hear the slap of the beaver's tail in this picture. Absolutely stunning.
Joel Arthurs - 7 Mar 2012
This beautiful painting jumped out at me heading back to my office in Metro Hall today and when I saw your name I thought get the heck out. It can't be THE Lori Kallay I knew from so long ago and low and behold it is. Congratulations Lori !! I'm so happy for you :D

Lori. I had no idea! Your range of style and mastery of different paint media is remarkable. I love the snowmobile tracks, and the thunderhead over the lake. You are a great artist. You made me homesick for nature. H.

Lori, I am in awe of your talent. All five senses react to your paintings! I can smell the cottage air, hear the water, feel the breeze...I will keep visiting the site until I am, once again, sitting on the dock. Can't wait to see more...Florida needs a little northern Ontario! Sarah
