Figurative Art, Contemporary Fine Art and Childrens Book Illustrator

Welcome to my website.

My career started in film animation and expanded to include tv, publishing (mainly for children) and a lengthy spell teaching illustration, graphic design and art-direction.

I worked in London but now live and work in Devon. The mainly agricultural and fishing environments here continue to be a great source of subject matter. But other things capture my interest too. Recently I have been combining a more graphic approach (I was a graphic designer) with text and letter forms, using these on a series I am calling All Good Things.

The observation of landscape has developed from the sheep paintings, I am currently looking at skies and water. Devon is an incredibly beautiful county. Its hilliness is what makes the division of fields so interesting. There is a linear quality to the allocation of space, which enables me to make patterns.

Paintings and drawings are for sale and some of these are available as limited edition giclée prints. Items marked with a  were either commissions or have been sold. The Coombe Gallery in Dartmouth and Artmill in Plymouth show my work or if images on this website are of interest you may contact me directly on lorraine@calaora.com  or phone 01803 832 739. I am very happy to discuss your requirements.

Thank you for visiting. I hope you enjoy what you see.
