About Me

Hi! I’m Lorraine,

(a.k.a. “Rain”) and I love creating bright, bold, beautiful art! I am a painter, illustrator, digital artist, writer, wife and (homeschooling) mom living in Colorful Colorado! I love bright colors, flowers and the beauty of creation! I am inspired by my faith in God, which always somehow reflects in my work.

My passion is to create art that is beautiful, inspirational and adds some joy to the atmosphere of the homes where it dwells. Making art is my “happy place”, and I love sharing that happiness with others!

My Art and Inspiration

Being a painter for many years, I have worked in several mediums, such as oils, watercolors and acrylics. Motherhood has changed the way I work, and I find that using acrylic paint is perfect for this season of life! I create my work in my kitchen “studio” and In between life’s interruptions, the layers of quick drying paint gives my work lots of texture and color! I have learned that having children has only added to my creativity and resolve as an artist!

Since family is so important to me, I have also embraced writing and illustrating children’s books as a way to teach my children lessons on faith, as well as use more of my creativity to inspire my kids. In 2021 I dove into learning digital art and created and published my first children’s book Snickers the Curious Goat! I am currently working on my next book, and have about 10 more behind that!

Commissions

For over 15 years I have been creating custom art for people’s homes! Whether it’s a floral painting to share a sentiment with someone, a family’s favorite vacation spot, or a pet portrait, I enjoy creating that perfect gift or personal artwork for my clients! If you are interested in a custom piece of art, please contact me and let’s brainstorm together!
