Lorraine Turner is a textile artist who gives support for endangered animals through her vibrant textile art.

Working as a practicing artist for many years as a graphic designer, working on wide variety of commercial projects but Lorraine’s adventure into textile art started a few years ago, and she adopted the ‘no rules’ approach to her textile art creations.

her passion is to work on large textile art portraits of endangered animals, using bright patterned fabrics, materials and techniques that she experiments with to achieve what’s in her head. Fabric applique, hand and free machine embroidery, aspects of quilting, so many techniques are layered together to produce her stunning art.

A key impact on Lorraine’s work is her inspiration. Endangered animals come to her via her daily meditations and tell her their stories and troubles. This is a fascinating story of working from the heart and attracting fabulous opportunities along the way.
