Originally from Montclair New Jersey, Lorraine now lives and works at the tip of Cape Cod in Provincetown Massachusetts. She is a painter, working in oil and wax on canvas. Her work is informed by a deep and reverent relationship with nature, with a particular affinity to sea, sky, and the elusive quality of fog. Her painting style is minimalist and leans toward the abstract. Lorraine employs a meticulous blending of color, oftentimes monochromatic, to produce the moody, ethereal feel that defines her work. The addition of a cold wax medium lends depth, subtlety, and a soft patina to the imagery. She paints solely with a palette knife, squeegie, and a few scratching tools. Her seascapes defy the category of art imitating nature, presenting a visual interpretation of the essence of the experience of time at the water's edge. It has been written that 'she paints like a writer, able to depict what a mood or emotion looks like.' Her artistic vision is defined by a sharp focus on capturing what is felt more than seen.
