Local Kingston Artist Lorraine Séguin began painting at a young age, with her family's support she has continued to paint throughout the years. Although primarily a self-taught artist, while studying Art History and Psychology at Queen's University 2001-2006, she took advantage of the spring-summer art courses and was glad to add the printmaking medium to her repertoire.

Lorraine first started painting in oil but currently works in water-colour, acrylic, oil, and printmaking. Her paintings are often described as vibrant, colourful, and energetic. Recurring themes in Lorraine‘s paintings are trees and water, her inspiration is drawn from Kingston’s landscapes as well as other Canadian vistas from past travels. Lorraine describes her most prominent style or genre as Abstract Representational.

Lorraine is an Ontario Certified Teacher and is currently teaching art and special education on an occasional basis for the Limestone District School Board.
