Lori Mason

Lori Mason's passion for quilting is about people-the stories told by the quilts and the relationships woven through the fabric. She cherishes these relationships, embodied by the patterns, which soften and become richer over time. Recently, Lori has focused her studio work primarily on creating quilts for special occasions like weddings and anniversaries, or to commemorate the lives of loved ones. Lori enjoys working individually with clients on these specially commissioned, one-of-a-kind pieces - she finds her one-on-one involvement in the process of creating commemorative and wedding quilts to be especially rewarding for both her and her clients.

As a textile designer and quilt artist, Lori Mason has been producing artwork for over 15 years. She comes from a multi-generational family of artists and architects, and began her career in textiles at age 10 when she discovered the joy of hemming her own jeans, as well as those of the rest of the family.

Lori received her early training in fiber arts and subsequently in designing fabric for industry. Early in her official career, she designed prints and wovens for Nike Apparel in many of their sport lines. Missing the feel of working with fabric, Lori then launched Lori Mason Design in 1999, creating one-of-a-kind, contemporary quilts and pillows. As part of Lori Mason Design, she now weaves together the two strands of her textile career by designing printed fabric for quilts and other home sewing projects.

Lori has sold her quilts in numerous national venues such as the Renwick Gallery's ArtsMart, the Smithsonian Craft Show and the Philadelphia Museum Craft Show. She has also shown her work through numerous national fiber art exhibitions. Her quilts have been featured in Country Living, Sew News Magazine, and Oregon Home, as well as on television's Good Day Lifestyles. One of her children's quilts, purchased by Oregon's Regional Arts and Culture Council, now hangs in a facility for abused children.

Lori lives and produces her work in Portland, Oregon.
