Hello and welcome to my page, I am a Visual Artist
Born and raised in Edmonton, Canada, Lorraine studied fine art throughout her school years, after which she apprenticed at the Academy of Realist Art where she graduated ‘with distinction’ in 2005, before moving to the west coast of Canada where she has been living ever since. Fascinated with the intensity and variety of colour reflected in light, she has moved towards an impressionist/expressionist style. Using multiple layers of paint and an often cooler palette, she blends the colours together on the paper, giving her paintings a luminescent quality. A lover of nature, she explores the beautiful world we are all a part of. Her choice of watercolour as a medium allows her to capture atmospheric subtleties and nuances of light. The colours can be soft and delicate or bold and bright. Her work has been exhibited in various galleries and exhibitions in Canada, the United States and Europe. Lorraine presently enjoys life living on the Pacific northwest coast with her boyfriend and their little furball pup Gracie.

Samples of my work
Nature is all around us; we are part of it. It can bring a smile to our face or a tear to our eye. When you look at my paintings you may see a person, an animal or a landscape; but that is an illusion, for what I paint are the subtle senses imbedded into their image. Soft whispers, serenity, warmth, stillness. My choice of watercolour as a medium allows me to capture subtleties and nuances of light. The colours can be soft and delicate or bold and bright. I want people to not just see what I see, I want them to feel it, to be right there standing next to me.
