Lori Stone, Proprietor @ The Joy Guild
{Motivator, Guide, Muse}  

 

Lori helps people find work and play that brings them joy. Resident Muse at The Joy Guild and Lead Creatrix for Bliss & Kitsch Design House, she draws on 20+ years of work in the corporate, academic, and non-profit sectors to guide forward-thinking people and organizations. A big kid at heart, a passion for adventure leads her wandering around the globe as a travel writer, fine art photography teacher, communications consultant, arts educator, and design junkie. As a cancer-survivor-turned-advocate and dynamic public speaker, you can also catch her preaching the gospel of women's health.

 

Lori is an alumna of:

  • Sonoma State University
    BA Communication Studies and Studio Photography

  • University of San Francisco
    MA Track in Organization & Leadership, Graduate School of Education

  • University of Washington
    Professional Certificate in Arts Management

In her leisure time, she particularly enjoys slow travel, burlesque, live music, Jane Austen novels, film, art-making, sea glass, gardening, all-things vintage, and thrift/antique store treasure hunting.

It was a competitive, juried application process so we are extremely proud to have been selected to the 2012-2013 program roster of Storefronts Seattle as a "Creative Enterprise," bringing a blend of our creative arts learning activities and philanthropic “Mark Art. Do Good” programs. Here’s how it works: if/when the Storefronts team discovers a vacant retail space that fits our needs, we will investigate placement and, if it’s a fit, move in for a period of 3-6 months. And YOU will get to come play in the new space.
