Lorraine Parker

Artist Statement

Lorraine’s background in teaching in several areas in addition to her love of nature and photography has led her to creative expression and to this exhibition. A love of teaching is a motivational force in her ongoing sharing of her knowledge and skills.

She has tutored for the Australian Sewing Guild, ATASDA, NCEATA, Be Creative By the Sea, Misty Mountains Retreat, many country groups, private organisations  and for Southern Cross University. Lorraine has written several courses  for the latter in Design and Textile Science and Innovation

After finishing full time work 8 years ago she finally had the time to devote to her passion for creativity through a textile medium  to be given an outlet.

Lorraine’s innovative approach is reflected in her vibrant range of work where the elements of design, particularly colour and texture have been incorporated. She uses a large  variety of fabrics, yarn and fibres in an ever  widening  range of techniques.

Her love of diversification has extended beyond quilting as seen in her broad spectrum of work.

Along the path, her journey has seen a continual expansion of mediums toward the more abstract and three dimensional  as seen in her capture of the essence of the life cycle of the Australian Bush

Both  her travel and photography will be a continuing source of inspiration and expansion and like so many others in this creative medium  her visionary field is ever expanding
