Lorraine Auton

I am a Norfolk artist, specialising in studies of nature and wildlife. I work mostly with acrylic. Since moving to the Norfolk Broads I have found inspiration in the unique natural environment of the area. It is my aim to try to capture the realistic form and texture of the wildlife I observe.

In contrast to modern movements in the art world, I am trying to return to the traditional values of technical craftsmanship. 

I also aim to portray atmosphere and capture movement in my work.

I run classes and workshops from The Studio Above and provide private art tuition from £12 per hour.

Pet portraits and commisions undertaken

I also do pet portraits and commissions. 

Please contact the Gallery to discuss composition, timescale, size and pricing. 

A very good quality photo of the pet will be required.

Coming to this Gallery has awoken my artistic threads and I'm going home now to produce something of my own.  I will be here again soon as it has a really nice feel about it.  Well done to all concerned!
