When asked to define her artistic style, Lori Siebert says that she likes to be a bit of a chameleon. Constantly experimenting with different styles and mediums feeds her insatiable curiosity. She has a very whimsical design sense and loves to play with color to give each collection that and she designs its own unique personality. Lori opened her own design firm just 3 years out of college in 1987 and later on her husband, Steve, joined in as the business grew. Her firm, Olika Studios, has developed branding and design programs for influential clients such as Target, Bath & Body Works, Nickelodeon, and Universal Studios.
Lori began the art licensing arm of her business 15 years ago, working with top manufacturers in the gift and home decor industry. She has been featured in “Where Women Create” and “Where Women Create Business. One of her greatest honors is being an ambassador for Gudrun Sjoden, her favorite fashion, and home textile designer. Currently, Lori loves to organize creative retreats in the US, as well as in Europe and Mexico.
At her home studio in Kentucky, Lori is always busy sewing, sculpting, drawing, painting, and concepting lines with her design team. Kenzie (who is a designer as well, works closely with her mom at Olika) She also has two grandchildren who light up her life!!!
