Lorna Wilson's distinctive style as a talented colourist is evident throughout the body of her work. She is constantly developing as an artist, continuously experimenting with different themes, mediums, glazes and colour palettes. Most recently, Lorna’s abstract paintings have been influenced by the transient nature of landscape- the continual changes of colour and light and the impermanence of our natural surroundings. With dynamic, sweeping brushwork, Lorna builds up intricate layers of colour to evoke a sense of depth within the paintings. Yet despite their boldness, Lorna’s paintings possess an intrinsically calming and serene quality.
Lorna Wilson studied Fine Art at Kingston University in Surrey where she obtained a 1st class BA (Hons) degree. She then went on to study Fine Art at postgraduate level at the Royal Academy Schools in Piccadilly, London, under the tutelage of Norman Adams RA and Jennifer Durrant RA, graduating in 1992.
Lorna exhibits her work both nationally and internationally. Her work is represented in numerous public, private and corporate collections around the world and has been used on the cover of a variety of publications, including Risk Magazine. She has also completed many commissions for projects and individuals worldwide, including a series of paintings for Ask Restaurants, three paintings for British Aerospace and three 5ft abstract paintings for a hotel in Mecca, Saudi Arabia.
