Although Lorelle was a theater major at Northwestern University, she also took many art classes while studying there. While working as a professional actress, she spent MANY hours at the Pottery Studio indulging her "clay addiction." She gave up both acting and clay when she had her two sons and became a full-time Mom. Needing a less messy, stay-at-home creative outlet, she took up quilting. Her current studies and expression are engaged in watercolor painting and her quilting space is now covered with painting supplies. Lorelle has been teaching with Art Trek since 2000.
