Episode 1: Jori Warren. Looking for the Wow

Download Transcript

Our first episode features Edmonton painter Jori Warren. I sat down with Jori in her kitchen on an unreasonably cold April morning.

We had a wide ranging chat with topics including her background as a set and prop designer, her love of finding “wow” in everyday items, the challenges of being a self taught artist, current projects, social media and the family events that changed her life and made her take up painting full time.

Jori produces work in great detail, yet at a large scale and it really does have that wow factor. We spoke about her recent currency series and her upcoming car series.
