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. Lorraine now lives in the beautiful Niagara Escarpment near Dundas, ON with her husband, fine art photographer Janusz Wrobel.
