Here's some feedback from the artists who attended one of  Lorraine's previous workshops . . .

" Just a note to say how much I enjoyed Sunday's class. My wife and friends were very impressed with the result. I feel a lot more confident at tackling skies now."

" Thoroughly enjoyed the whole thing, so big thanks to Lorraine for the inspiration "

" Thank you for a brilliant day. Loved every minute of it and lunch was wonderful too. "

We're in The Wall Street Journal

Lorraine features as part of an article published in May 2021 about the beauty of the Norfolk Broads and why people, particularly artists, are drawn to the region.

To view the whole article by Ruth Bloomfield, which includes a lovely selection of photos of the area, visit (a sister publication that requires no subscription) and then search for the article about The Norfolk Broads.

Great news! Some of Lorraine and Tony's work is also available at The Norwich Art Shop, 75 Upper St Giles, Norwich which was the winner of the ' Best Art Gallery ' category in The Muddy Stilettos Awards 2021.
