ominated by the use and perception of colour, Lorraine uses traditional print-making techniques on aluminium, to produce unique raw material. Her interest in old textiles and their history influences the surface designs and textures, and she enjoys the challenge of momentarily deceiving the eye into wondering if the material is cold, hard metal, or soft pliable textile transformed into an unyielding shape. She experiments with a variety of printing methods, from naïve block prints, etched and cut lino prints, and sharp digitally imaged screen prints. Lorraine’s use of form is usually traceable to flora and fauna. Currently her studies of cacti and succulents, their statuesque shapes, fantastic flowers and deceptive surfaces lure her into layering metals and stones to capture something of their individuality. Her eye for colour leads Lorraine to unusual gemstones, chosen for unique character and freeform shapes. She has a large collection, and can usually source something special to suit your requirements. Alternative engagement rings and special anniversaries are always an inspiration! www.lorrainegibby.com lorrainegibby.tictail.com
