From Watercolor Nights to a Movement

A Haitian native, Florida-based artist Lori Saint Rome founded Lori in Theory during the pandemic to advocate for love and community through her vibrant illustrations, promoting self-care, inner peace, femininity, and joy.

Saint Rome’s colorful, well-represented, nature-infused art with elements of fashion and unique patterns is inspired by her personal experiences as a woman who chose to challenge social norms and expose her radiant spirit. She strives to aid other women in their journeys of self-discovery by providing them with creative pieces that reflect their values and allows them to create a safe haven in their homes.

Saint Rome’s art has been recognized by HBO, the Los Angeles Times and Andrews Mcmeel Publishing. It goes beyond the canvas in the form of stickers, notebooks, greeting cards and puzzles, allowing her multiple collections to be shared in various ways.

Saint Rome’s artistic adventure began during the pandemic in 2020 when she hosted friends for virtual watercolor paint nights to unite people, spread love and nurture her inner calling. Although she started with watercolor, Saint Rome has flourished in digital art. 

Before her era as an uplifting artist, Saint Rome graduated from the University of Florida with a degree in civil engineering. She founded Lori Theory in 2021 when professionals around the world were embarking on entrepreneurial journeys known as “pandemic pivots,” and transitioned from practicing engineer to full-time artist in 2022. Saint Rome found her passion and purpose during unprecedented times.
