The Artist/Designer: Like many women of her generation, Lorraine Roy was introduced to the fabric arts at her mother’s knee with a needle and thread. This was the start of a long creative journey that led to a full time career in art textiles. Her current work is a blend of net collage, machine appliqué, and embroidery which is much like painting with fabric. Born and raised in rural Southwestern Ontario, Canada, Lorraine developed an early appreciation for the land and its natural beauty and completed a BSc in Horticulture. She blends realistic imagery with symbols from dreams, memories and mythology, and trees are a recurring motif in her work. "Nothing brings me more joy than to coax order and beauty out of a messy jumble of materials. I like to think that my art imitates life."
