Lorraine is a full time artist and sculptor living in Golden Bay. For over 20 years she has exhibited in New Zealand and her artwork and sculptures are now held in collections worldwide. Her contemporary paintings reflect the colours and landscapes of the region.
She sculpts mainly in marble and has six public sculptures — the largest being 'Two Birds of Peace,' two three tonne marble birds commissioned by the Tasman District Council in Richmond.
In sculpture she uses flowing lines and rounded shapes to convey the subject. Her influence comes from the natural environment, from the small shells and driftwood on the beaches to the sculptural rocky outcrops of limestone and marble on the Takaka Hill and elsewhere. Bird forms have always been a feature for her artworks.

"I sculpt in marble and riverstone and have been growing and decorating gourds since 1984. Every gourd has its own unique shape and through design and colour I express it's individuality."
