Artist Showcase

Lorelle is a largely self-taught artist who as a child started out with drawing. During the years of her marriage her artistic inclinations were placed on hold. At the age of 50 she resumed her artistic pursuits. When a car accident then left her unable to continue her regular line of work, she focused full-time on her painting. Soon she started teaching art to children and then adults, which led her to being a full time artist and instructor. Her students have ranged fromas young as 7 years to as old as 92!
Lorelle'swork is spread around the world. Her paintings hang in private and in businesscollections throughout the United States, as well as in Canada, Germany,England and Holland.

While hertalent covers a large range of subjects, she has always been fascinated bypeople. And so her primary interests have always focused on being a portraitartist, as well as a love for painting animals.

Although sheideally likes to meet her subjects for portrait commissions, she primarilyworks from photographs as her clients are widespread. It is always Lorelle'sgoal to not only capture the likeness of her subject on the canvas, but to alsocapture the feelings and the spirit of her subjects. She believes that her paintings,no matter the subject, should touch the heart of the viewers and give thempause to take a closer look.

One ofLorelle's loves is sharing with others the things she has learned.  Sheteaches classes and workshops for all levels including beginners, in Ashevilleand Black Mountain NC.  In addition she will be teaching workshops in OldFt. NC, at Arrowhead Galley, Florence Thomas Art School in Glendale Springs NC, Lake Toxaway Art League, Connesstee Falls League and more.  By teaching all subjects in allmediums, Lorelle is able to help students reach their next level artistically.
She isalso available to do demonstrations for art leagues and other groups.
