Lorna is a native of Kildare and now lives in Carrick-on-Suir, Tipperary. She works on canvas and paper with acrylic paint, pastel and acrylic marker. Lorna embraces a range of subjects in her artworks which are inspired by her dreams and also taken from her memory or travels to places like Australia, France, Denmark and America. Working with bright, bold colours, assured lines and repetitious patterns she paints and celebrates people and the world in general. From the young age of 5, when she poured a can of red paint over herself and a dull grey tractor, Lorna has considered herself an artist.

Lorna is a member of the KCAT Studio in Kilkenny. She has shown work in many exhibitions in Ireland including at Ormonde College and County Hall Kilkenny, Kilkenny Arts Festival, St. Luke’s Hospital Kilkenny, Dunlavin Arts Festival Wicklow, Kilkenny County Council Arts Office Gallery, Kilkenny Design Centre, Airfield Trust, Garter Lane Arts Centre, Áras Éanna, Burren College of Art, Waterford Regional Hospital, Axis Art Centre Ballymun, Crawford Art Gallery, Dublin City Council Offices, Butler Gallery Kilkenny, City Hall Cork, Copperhouse Gallery Dublin. She has also shown internationally including in Scotland, Australia, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Germany, The Netherlands.

Lorna’s work is featured in a number of publications, documentaries and catalogues including, “Inside Out”, presented on RTE by Brent Pope, “Beyond: Irish Outsider Art 2015” and “Living Colour”, a feature documentary based on the KCAT Studio artists.
