Lorraine was born in Guelph Ontario.
In 1993, she earned a BA in fine arts from Bishops University, focused on photography, drawing and painting. After some time travelling and adventuring overseas, she continued her studies in painting and drawing at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, earning her BFA in 2000.
Currently Lorraine's interests in painting are informed by her influences of Abstract expressionism and minimalism. She is engaged in exploring surfaces through painterly layers of colour and gestural mark making, while merging abstraction with elements of representation. It is the mystery of the unknown and the possibility of her process, as revealed through the working of surfaces that intrigue her most.
Lorraine currently resides in the Comox Valley.
