Lorraine Hughes (Lozzie) was born in Ireland and moved to England when she was two years old. She grew up in Sussex and developed a passion for art whilst she was at school. After leaving school she trained in a vocational career as a teacher in Holistic and Beauty Therapies. Art became a passion again for Lozzie which emerged from a life changing experience in 2011. She began to teach herself to paint and her inspiration comes from painting people demonstrating movement, dance and music. She mainly works in oils and her use of colour is bright and vibrant, she uses a lot of reds, blues and oranges to create large brush strokes, then moving into detail.
She is inspired by impressionism and fauvism, her subjects are the female form, animals and famous people.
