When it comes to her art, Lorraine is a late bloomer. The path has been a long and crooked one! She was raised in St. Louis, where she took every art course offered by her high school and went to college with a declared major in art. However, when she saw what the other students could do, she gave it up, thinking she was not talented enough.
Lorraine's father, who was a self-taught and gifted artist, always told her she could learn everything she needed to become a successful artist by reading and practice. So in her forties, after she quit her job to care for her mother-in-law, she took his advice to heart and started reading a lot about art and practicing. She is very grateful to her father and her mother-in-law for the “push” they gave her.
Lorraine has studied with some of the most gifted and well-known teachers, including Richard McKinley, Maggie Price, Theresa Emmett Allison, Lynn Granneman, Paula Ann Ford, Desmond O'Hagan, Jerry Yarnell, Marsha Hamby Savage, Liz Haywood-Sullivan and Bob Rohm.
