London-based artist Lorraine Molins trained at Chelsea School of Art and subsequently at Goldsmiths College. Her paintings are recognisable for their colourful, vibrant and abstract nature. References to her early figurative work and the human experience are still present in her paintings, such as the bending shape like a simplified human form or the bent branch of a tree.
Sweeping gestural marks are her signature, and her paintings are a combination of warm and cool colours, and a myriad of shapes and movements. Her latest work has been influenced by the colours and lines of landscape, buildings, weather, motorways, moving people, trees and the sea. Molins describes her paintings like sitting in front of a large cinema screen or experiencing the visual excitement of theatrical lighting.
An Arts Council Award winner, Molins has exhibited widely in London, Paris and Melbourne. She was shortlisted in the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition 2015 and her work is held in public spaces and private collections. Lorraine has also worked both as an actress, and jazz singer, having written shows and performed live many times.
