BIO: Lorraine Fenlon
Born in Dublin in 1963, Lorraine moved to the Isle of Man where she lived for 14 years. In 2005, she returned to settle in the lovely County of Carlow in South East Ireland. This move to Carlow allowed her to pursue her passion more seriously.Known for her luscious depictions of fruit, colourful fish and rich contemporary landscapes and seascapes, she focuses on exaggerated close ups and the patterns, light and reflections to be enjoyed from nature and the Irish landscape surrounding her. Her work is strong in composition & complimentary colours. Working mostly with oils, building layers and using textural gestures gives a rich finish. She paints with a brush, palette knife, her fingers and other objects that come to hand to achieve her ideas. Her work is continually evolving combining contemporary art guided by traditional approaches. In 2014, she was invited to exhibit a themed exhibition for Carlow Arts Festival. This was her first solo show and the start of her professional path. In 2015, she took part in ‘Portraits for the Post Office’ in which she had a large portrait selected by Carlow Co Council, Carlow Arts Festival, The GPO and OPW to hang over the Post Office. She exhibits at The RDS, Dublin and various Art Fairs and Galleries and has had 11 solos shows to date. She runs her own art classes under the name 'Red Apple Arts' and is a registered artist and tutor with Kilkenny & Carlow ETB to facilitate community groups including people with special needs to enjoy and partake in art projects and large murals.
