Visiting Artist

Lorraine A. Hynes

Glassware Accents – Grapes

“My passion and dedication for the arts has evolved over the last twenty-five years. My painting began with decorative arts, studying with the late Mary McLean (Norfolk, MA), Leah Lopez (NYC) and Anthony Tomaselli (Providence Art Club), and participating in numerous workshops as well as private lessons with Kelly McCullough at the Providence Art Club. My main focus has been still life in oils and developing my plein air skills.

I am influenced by many artists painting in traditions of the old masters and classical representation on canvas. I believe in creating realism through my own interpretation of color, light and dark, composition and design. My life has transitioned from a challenging business atmosphere to freedom of expression, compassion, and desire to create artwork from nature and impressionistic painting.”

Lorraine is an exhibiting artist with the Providence Art Club, a current member of Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (RISCA), American Women Artists, Cape Cod Art Association Creative Art Center, Bristol Art Museum, Newport Art Museum, Portsmouth Art Guild, Pawtucket Arts Collaborative, past President of the Wickford Art Association (WAA) and current WAA Board Member.
