Lynda Lorraine was born in Surrey in 1978 and is of Filipino and English descent. At the age of eighteen, she left home to pursue photography and fine art training first in Hertfordshire and then fashion design at London College of Fashion and then Central Saint Martins under Louise Wilson in London.
Her two dissertations, one exploring the relationships our bodies have with the architectural spaces we occupy every day and the second exploring sculptural beauty in couture and high fashion history in a contemporary context were both clear foundations to her later work. After completing her art school training in fashion, Lorraine maintained a connection with the art world with life drawing at the Royal Drawing School. After a successful career in fashion, photography and web design it was always an ambition to develop her artistic talent. In recent years she decided to actively pursue art as a versatile and largely self-taught artist. The artist has participated in many exhibitions as well as solo shows in London. Lorraine still lives in the capital; her time is spent completing portraiture, landscape and movement works as well as teaching and supporting media, communications and strategic development for Technical Services at Royal College of Art.
