I recently purchased a beautiful watercolor painting from Lorie. It was, and is everything that I expected it to be. She shipped it out to me promptly with no problems. I'm in love with her art! I recommend her whole heartily! Her prices are very reasonable too.

Lorie is a very gifted artist. The colors, detail and expressions in her work move one's heart. My husband's dog, Chief, recently passed away. I immediately thought of Lorie as I follow her on Facebook, and her art weekly inspires and encourages me. Lorie agreed to do a commissioned painting of Chief. The end result was a treasure that will last our lifetime and into the next generation for those who remember Chief. I would highly highly recommend Lorie. She not only did an excellent job; but also her admin work in promptly sending out the work, the packaging details to make sure it arrived safely, and all communications were done with excellence. If you want a piece of art that will touch your heart and those around you, then Lorie is the person to contact.

About Lorie and Mustard Seed Art

Lorie Bonville Smith – Mustard Seed Art

Most recently (Summer 2018), Lorie has adventured into Fine Art Watercolours and Fine Art Reproductions which have been received very well.  These new watercolours may be viewed in person at Noah’s Ark Cafe, 350 Burnham Rd., Oakland, NB E7L 2V4 and at the Sweet Spot Cafe and Gift Shop in the Main Entrance of Upper River Valley Hospital (URVH), 11300 Rte 130, Waterville, NB E7P 1H1.

‘Use the talents and resources you are blessed with’ has been a very meaningful life mantra to live by for Lorie (Bonville) Smith. Born in Presque Isle, ME and married Canadian.

Lorie grew up in a large family where a strong work ethic and sense of responsibility was instilled by her parents who were creative and not afraid to think outside the box.

As a child of 10 Lorie’s passion for art was recognized by her parents, who enabled her to foster as a protégé of the late, Verna Hedrick of Presque Isle, Maine. For seven years during after school lessons Lorie trained with Mrs. Hedrick. As well as the techniques of oil medium painting Mrs. Hedrick also shared her love of art and infused her students with joie de vivre. To this day, it is Lorie’s motto~ Paint Happy! She truly believes that being at peace with herself and the world around her is key to creating her best art.

Mustard Seed Art has been the fulfillment of a passion credited to a God-given, creative spirit.  Lorie posts her newest work on www.mustardseedart.ca and several social media sites regularly: Facebook, Instagram, Google Business, LinkedIn and Twitter. When asked why the name, "Mustard Seed Art," her response is, "I paint and have faith that they will sell."  

Lorie describes herself ‘like a tree’ planted on the Canadian/US border with roots and branches reaching into both countries ~ equally loved.

One recent, Canadian highlight was when the town of Florenceville-Bristol, NB purchased a painting from Lorie to gift to New Brunswick, Premier Brian Gallant who visited the area on July 15, 2017 for Canada's 150th Regional Celebrations.  We are #NBProud with #Maineroots.
