Artists Statement

Lynda Lorraine is an Artist specialising in portraiture, figurative and landscape work.

In her portraiture work Lynda Lorraine paints from life over a few sittings. The artist is happy to travel to sittings and is working on getting a studio in the future to accommodate visitors for sittings as well.

London and its surroundings as well as occasional travel provides an abundance of subjects to observe for her work, and a great variety of texture and light.

Method of Working

‘I paint from life and like one or two sittings for single portraits and up to 10 for group portraits. I take a lot of my own photographs for photographic reference together with actual sittings to complete your commission, but do not work from other people’s images. I am very happy to travel both nationally and internationally to my sitters. I am not currently registered for VAT.’
