Another gratifying connection made through blogging and Facebook. 

Lorraine and I met online. We seem to cross paths 
with the images of art and artists we like to share on our blogs.

Her encaustic work is fully charged with meaningful marks and layers of life. 
Please spend time on her website  here and be sure to view her blog here.


  1. I love the mix of materials in this work and the beauty that develops from the relationships she creates. I too am a fan of Lorraine's blog.

  2. I met Lorrie at Peters Valley Craft Center where she holds a post as an artist in residence. Her spirit and personality show in this work.


I always enjoy reading comments!
