Lorraine Séguin was born and raised in Kingston Ontario. She grew up in Glenburnie just north of Kingston and spent most summers in the Muskokas. These early experiences combined with later travels across Canada including both east and west coasts and northern locations such as James Bay, Labrador, and Whitehorse has given her a great love and appreciation of nature, which is evident in many of Lorraine’s paintings. She has had a passion for the arts from a very young age, first starting to paint in oils in her pre-teens and moving to watercolour painting at fourteen. She continues to explore different mediums and styles of painting, always looking to challenge herself and learn more; the one thing that stays consistent is her use of vibrant eye-catching colours.
Lorraine is currently an Occasional Teacher with the Limestone District School Board where she teaches Visual Arts and Special Education. She strives to pass on her knowledge and passion for the arts to the next generation of artists.
