Born and raised in rural Southwestern Ontario, Lorraine developed an early appreciation for the land and its natural beauty. Her B.Sc. in Horticulture and subsequent research are ongoing sources of inspiration. Using a unique mixture of techniques like sewing, collage, embroidery and quilting, she integrates thousands of fabric cuttings and threads with fine tulle and machine stitching. In her imagery she combines realism, symbolism and abstraction, with trees as a recurring motif. The results combine her passion for science and spirituality with the surprising versatility of fabrics and threads.
Her work has been shown nationally and internationally and is available for purchase from her studio, online, or from any of her five representing galleries. She is the recipient of a number of grants from the Canada Council and the Ontario Arts Council. Lorraine has also lectured and taught in Ontario, Quebec, Alberta and BC. She and her husband, professional fine art photographer Janusz Wrobel share home and studio just outside Dundas, Ontario.
