About
After 25 years as a Creative Director in Advertising, beginning her career with a formal education in Graphic Design and Visual Communications Lorraine rediscovered her passion for art-for-art-sake when she undertook a further two years full time studies at the Sydney Institute of Design, Australia to obtain her Diploma in Jewellery and Object Design.

Lorraine is a skilled designer who studied under tutors such as Robin Blau, Ragnar Hansen, Ernst Pfenninger, Cinnamon Lee, Merilyn Bailey and several other renowned metalsmiths and artists.

Moving from Sydney to the hinterland behind Burleigh Heads, Queensland, Australia Lorraine is possibly busier than ever indulging her passion for what she terms "creative adventures".

well lamp work would be a treat here. only 3 days with wet towels in my studio this summer,i believe it was 12 degrees last night.
can't imagine how much energy you must have, working at night. it is a red after dark here and old movies. glad you have a undemanding man, any surplus can be sent down collect

well it is too bad it is too far for lunch. maybe when you get to sydney again.i like the work you make , your objects are grand.are you filling some with resin? is the white piece with water looking drops a whistle?
thank you for you comments, this k&c is a win win!

Hi Lorraine

Its great to have you join up.

Yes, I know what you mean, it is a little hot here in Perth too and for me its a glass of wine and a bit of chill out time on the computer to fix those sleepless nights. There is so much amazing work here. Its nice to see you have added some images of your work too.

There is lots of stuff you can do on kit and caboodle - put images, news and events up, ask/answer stuff in the forums, join a group and yes, you can even pimp your page. Its easy to move elements around and to change the format of your page.

Just remember kit and caboodle is a public network, its aim is promotional, so be sure to only put up personal details that you are comfortable with. There are privacy and email options in the settings. (Gazillions of kit and caboodle emails in your inbox driving you bonkers? Check out how to fix that in FAQ on the right.)

Kit and caboodle is an ideal place to put up posts about exhibitions or any current news that you have. There is a lot of interest in the network. It would be great if you posted regularly in the blog, you can choose to have blog posts on your page and/or on the front page. Add some images and links too.

Also dont forget to join our facebook page. Say hi to Sonya.

Most of all, there are lots of opportunities to network with other jewellers, outlets, galleries and to see what is happening in the world of contemporary jewellery. It should be fun. Anytime you have a problem, or cant work something out, let me know.

Cheers
Cathy
