Lorraine originally trained as a scientist and developed an interest in sculpture later on in life. She began to study sculpture on a part-time basis, and went on to complete a Fine Art degree. Lorraine has since undertaken several courses including a Post-Graduate certificate in Digital and Business skills; stone, polystyrene, wood and chainsaw carving and is currently completing a C&G in Photography.
Sculpture is the preferred discipline of Lorraine's work, using materials ranging from stone, wood and polystyrene. Many of her original pieces were smaller, figurative works, and these gradually evolved into larger, more loosely-styled organic, abstract forms. Recurring themes often reference mathematical formulae, polaric systems that occur in nature, and the duality of positive and negative space expressed as the co-existence of form and void.
Lorraine's sculptures are abstract and produced in a variety of media, including stone, bronze, metal resins and steel. She has participated in several group exhibitions in the UK and Europe and has received commissions for a London park and a couple of new housing developments in the UK.
Lorraine has recently been elected as an Associate of the Royal society of British Sculptors.
