Lori and Dan have collaborated in art since they met in 1988.
They first enjoyed hours together water coloring handmade Christmas cards for friends and family. Dan designed props for theme parties while Lori decorated show rooms at the World Trade Center and each would assist the other.
Dan's love for cartooning soon turned into an animation business and Lori became project manager for Dan Dudley Cartoons which they co-owned for 11 profitable years. Meanwhile Lori studied massage therapy and rediscovered clay, a skill from her 20’s in West Virginia. As the demand for 2D animation waned Lori drew Dan into collaborating with clay for a "Day of the Dead" show at the Bath House Cultural Center in 2000. Now, they participate in this annual event every October.
