Shiori Mori is a Japanese-American artist born and raised in Ellicott City, Maryland. In 2016, she began her creative studies at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York, where she studied a broad spectrum of art forms–from sculptural design to 2D graphics to traditional drawing. She then pivoted her focus to classical realism painting.
In 2018, she enrolled in the painting program at the Florence Academy of Art in Florence, Italy. Here, she absorbed the principles, methods and ideology espoused in the classical arts. She is currently attending her last semester at the academy.
