I am Lorna Lorraine, a self-taught Abstract Expressionist Artist specializing in pastel and driven by inspiring others. I recognized my ability to express my imaginable theories into abstract realism at age 50. Starting Art after publishing my first anthology, I have defied age and gender-related stereotypes. It was not a part of my plan, but my vision emerged upon viewing the works of some talented artists and artisans at the Trenton Area Soup Kitchen where I volunteered academic services. I eventually joined them in a permanent exhibit of artwork in the art cooperative known as the A-Team. I credit the group for my ephemeral growth into living an artful life.

Just like my poetic expressions, my artwork follows a similar theme of light contrasting dark. My inspiration comes from colors of my Jamaican heritage, people and the world. After an introduction to pastel, I developed a fascination with that medium. Although I have a few watercolors, oils, acrylics, charcoals and pencil works, most of my works are in pastel or blends of pastel and acrylic. My first passion is portraits in pastel on matboard, mixed media, acrylics, and ink on wood panel or canvas. Other works can be seen in Illustrations for children's storybooks. I currently show my works through postcards, greeting cards, coasters, posters, tiles, and portraits, and some have been shown in the following publications:


Lambertville Beacon 2002
Bucks County Herald 2004
Trenton Times 2004
Princeton Packet 2006

In addition I have participated in several invitational, non-juried shows where I sold artwork
