Lorraine Centrella, a Prospect, CT resident is a retired teacher and substitute who has always loved art. She started painting about 9 years ago. Having no formal art training, her technique has come primarily from the painting experience. DVD’s, magazine articles, books and museum visits have also contributed to her learning. As a self-taught artist, Lorraine enjoys painting skies, landscapes, seascapes and flowers. Her latest venture is into the realm of abstract painting.
Lorraine’s medium choice is acrylic paint with its wide range of application techniques which leave room for experimentation and artistic expression. Always intrigued by color and design in the natural world, Lorraine’s paintings reflect her interpretation or impression of surroundings. Many viewers have expressed a sense of being drawn into the scene.
Lorriane’s work has been exhibited twice at the New Britain Museum of American Art, Hartford Art Space, and other Connecticut libraries.
A selection of her paintings will be on display at the Southbury Public Library during the month of November 2017.
