Lorraine Abernethy • Village Galleries Maui


Lorraine Abernethy’s life could be described as a life long passion for art. She has always had a commitment to art from an early age, whilst growing up in the Tweed. In her early years she resided in Sydney and North Queensland. Lorraine currently lives in Kingscliff Northern NSW, where her studio is located.

Her artwork has been described.. “she maintains a sense of adventure and experimentation in keeping with younger artists”.

More recently her work has evolved to include different mediums for a more fluid expression of imagery and that of her studies in art therapy. The art of inward looking, outward reaching, a new attention to energy and stillness Abernethy explores the surface of life through her work, scratching away at the layers, reaching beneath to reveal that which is glimpsed. As the artist Louise Bourgeois says “I’ve been to hell and back. And let me tell you it was wonderful.”
