The Art of Lori Owen

Lori Owen grew up on a family farm near Nelson, Wisconsin, and resides in the beautiful valleys of Buffalo County. Daily living around wildlife, bluffs, creeks, and farming became the inspiration for her artwork along with painting pet portraits and farm life. With a lifelong interest in art, her painting for others began by painting an old treasured saw that carried into repurposing and painting items found locally along with canvas, tin, oars, and painting on flour sack towels and linens.

You can find her display of items at the Eagle Center in Wabasha, Minnesota and the Stone Barn in rural Nelson, Wisconsin.

Lori’s pieces are available for purchase in the National Eagle Center gift store. For inquiries, please email Tiana Lueck at

How do artists help eagles?

Artists who participate in the Artists Helping Eagles exhibit promote environmental awareness, conservation, and education through works of art that are inspired by nature, history, and/or culture.

When did this start?

Since 2013, artists have been encouraged to display their work at the National Eagle Center in gallery spaces, exhibits, and exhibitions.

How can you help?

A portion of the proceeds from artwork sold in the Artists Helping Eagles exhibit benefits the National Eagle Center and on-going care of the eagle ambassadors.
