I work in mixed media exploring themes of landscape and the environment. Mixed media allows me to combine digital technology with the physicality of paint, creating multi-layered surfaces. Words and symbols in the form of collage, mark making or asemic writing are incorporated in the art making process as an aesthetic element rather than literal meaning but reflecting our modern day landscape, where nature grows alongside man-made signs, symbols and grafitti.
I am fascinated by the juxtaposition of digital imagery with the loose, unpredictable nature of painting, creating new dimensions of unexpected colour and texture.
I studied Fine Art at Cambridge School of Art, graduating in 2012, since when I have continued with my art practice.
I exhibit regularly in Cambridge and my work can be seen on permanent display at Sandford House (Wetherspoon's) in Huntingdon.
Some of Lorraine's artwork is stocked in our gallery in Finchingfield and a selection can also be bought online below.
