Lorraine burst into the world of textile art in 2018 with a 26-piece special exhibit at IQF in Houston, just two years after creating her very first art quilt! Since then, she has become an Aurifil Designer, Aurifilisopher, been featured in major quilting magazines, and seen on Quilting Arts TV and the QuiltShow with Ricky Tims.

Lorraine is a proud Benartex fabric designer and brings a lifetime of creative experience to her textileart. A commercial artist for forty years, Lorraine won two Emmy Awards as a lead designer for the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and is the recipient of multiple awards at the San Diego International Comic-Con in her role as Art Director of the Library of American Comics.

She combines her varied experience as a watercolorist, commercial artist, and television animator with her love for all things fabric to create exciting multi-textured fabric designs.

Lorraine also teaches and lectures internationally, and is an author and motivational speaker who strongly believes in moving thought into action.

She has yet to meet a fabric embellishment she doesn’t like!

Lorraine works from her studio in Clearwater, Florida.
