Lorraine Brown has always felt a connection with the art of watercolour. The mediums ability to create unique and unexpected results, its risk and surprise, were special and attractive qualities to the artist; who found risk and surprise at every turn in her creative and professional life.
Her expressive works are the product of her desire to story tell and to capture the essence of a subject. Working predominantly in watercolour, Lorraine likes to play with creating texture and that something special, taking risks and going anywhere her imagination might take her.
She defines her vivid works as “expressive impressions” a blend of realism and abstraction and is constantly searching for new ways to use her medium.
She holds classes and workshops throughout Adelaide and shares her painting process with regular content on You tube
An Accredited member of Guildhouse, her paintings are held in private and corporate collections in Australia and overseas.
Lorraine has exhibited in numerous group shows since 2011 and solo shows since 2013
