“Some people are simply driven to draw and paint what they see around them. I am one of them,” Lorraine Myers stated, explaining that she began as a small child and has been an artist all of her life. Working in watercolors and acrylics, Lorraine continues to take inspiration from the sites around her, as her paintings range from large complex still life and lush floral works, to landscapes and coastal seascapes.
Lorraine was an honors graduate of the Parsons School of Design, and continued her studies at the Art Students League of New York. She has had numerous one-woman shows in New York and Connecticut and has won awards in juried exhibitions. Her fine art paintings have been collected in the U.S. and U.K, and reproduced as posters and greeting cards, sold worldwide. Some of her paintings are reproduced in Iris Giclee Limited Edition Prints. In 2005, she was juried into the prestigious Mystic Seaport’s 26th Annual International Art Exhibition with her painting’s a Keeper.
“I have never indulged in abstract intellectual notions of art, she explained, but rather, I have merely tried to capture the things I enjoy observing, while hopefully sharing these observations with others.” Lorraine’s current artistic focus is on capturing Connecticut’s splendid farms and barns. She is hoping her paintings will raise the public’s awareness of their unfortunate and rapid disappearance.
