Lorraine realizes her passion for the arts in her paintings.  Coming from a Ukrainian heritage (nee Kereliuk), a father who loved his violin and a mother whose rich creative persona enveloped the entire family resulted in Lorraine's deep appreciation of art and music.  Studies in the arts include; Banff Centre for the Arts, Pottery West, Pros Art Studio and Gallery, visiting art museums and studying the works of the masters.

"My passion for the art is in the process; the process is the result of that passion.  The process of creating a great painting as in a beautiful song is in the harmony...harmony between the creator and that which is created.  I see my style somewhere between naturalism and classical realism.  My paintings are an extension of my love of family, life, music and art."
