Growing up in rural western Kansas, Lori Nix witnessed a series of accidents, both natural and man-made. This never deterred her from living her life.
“Rather, these events brought excitement to a life that by most people’s standards was quite dull,” she says. About eight years ago, when she began creating fictional landscapes with Kathleen Gerber, Lori turned to these incidents for inspiration. The images have a looming sense of dread, reminding us of our civilisation’s imminent end.
An Effective Collaboration
Before they begin any scenario, the duo brainstorms multiple ideas instead of just one. “If we can’t envision an idea this far out, then we’re not going to pursue it.

For instance, Lori is the architect, while Kathleen is the sculptor. “Lori is responsible for hard surfaces, while I take care of the detailed items. If it takes patience, I’m going to do it.
