Hi, I’m Lorna and if I wasn’t an artist I would be a teacher.
I just love sharing and I’m excited to share with you what I have learnt during my 40 years as a professional artist in my first online course.
It hasn’t always been easy, in fact there are times in my life where I really doubted myself. I now realise after all of these years of working and exhibiting that, if I didn’t have those doubts and fears it wouldn’t be healthy. I love sharing those moments with people because I know what that’s like.
This course is all about finding your artistic voice, your own visual language. I’ll be guiding you through every step of the way by making your brushes, exploring your mark making and a series of projects to create objects of desire to record this time and this place.
If you’re a textile artist, you’ll probably do lots of stitching and if you’re a mixed media artist, you’ll probably use a lot of different mediums. It’ll be quite different from being in a class, but there’s a special quality about having this time of isolation of just being you and doing it at your own own pace.
Perfectly imperfect, to me is just the best compliment anybody could give me. I can’t wait to see what you create and hear your stories within our online community.
It’s going to be a time of deep discovery.
