Lora Moore-Kakaletris is an award winning photo based artist who lives in Toronto, Canada. Lora’s life experiences have brought her to a place where she finds herself driven to create art about who she is, what moves her and what she feels. Her beautiful and dramatic works are filled with personal energy and emotion. After the traumatic loss of her mother at the young age of twelve Lora suppressed most of her thoughts and feelings until she picked up a camera in her late thirties. Often building sets by hand to create intimate, emotive and evocative self portraits, or plunging below the water’s surface, she creates images that reflect ideas and emotions that viewers are drawn to regardless of their personal journeys. Her images have an intentional painterly quality that gives her work a distinctive yet unique look, often blurring the lines between painting and photograph.
