My current body of work is inspired by the writings of John Burroughs (1837-1921), naturalist, and Catskill native. My intention is to interpret elements of his essays through the visual arts, specifically, painting, sculpture, and installation. By creating work in conversation with Burroughs writing, I hope to provide contemporary viewers with alternative entry points into his experience.

Lorenz studied Printmaking at the NY State University College at Brockport and received her MA in Painting from Albany State University, Albany, NY . She incorporates drawing, painting, printmaking and other processes into her daily studio practice in Brooklyn, New York and in rural New York State’s Delaware County.
Lorenz balances her solitary studio practice with collaborative ventures involving other Artists. Creating in collaboration with other artists has been a thread running through her artistic career since the 1980’s when Lorenz was a member of COLAB (Collaborative Projects) and the exhibitions coordinator of ABC NO RIO, both Artist run organizations active in NYC.
In 2005 she co- founded the Longyear Gallery, a cooperative gallery located in Margaretville, NY and in 2017, she co-founded ADHOC Projects, an Artist’s collective that curates thematic pop-up exhibits online and in underutilized spaces.
Her exhibition history reflects her longstanding affiliations with alternative and Artist run Arts organizations.
