Lorraine studied Fine Art & Design at the University of Ulster and after graduating she decided to follow her dream of becoming a professional artist and moved to Galway. Lorraine draws her inspiration from the surrounding countryside and from her love of animals and nature.

The originals paintings are acrylic on canvas which gives her the ease and flow necessary to create her distinctive style of work. Lorraine has developed a range of products to carry her creativity into another medium including limited edition prints, greeting cards, mugs and cushions.
