Artist biography:
I'm Lorne, I have a huge hunger for all things creative. I'm a designer by trade which fulfils some of my creative drive but I need more and in a different way to my regular day to day work I do. This is where my art comes in. I get inspiration from the strangest places, for example in might be a piece of wood with an unusual texture, an old spade propped up against a brick wall that inspires me to start a piece. I work with reclaimed wood and found objects. I start with a sketch which forms the basis of the finished artwork. Everything is reclaimed including the custom made frames.
