Mission Statement: 

I believe I am privileged to have my passion to be an integral part of my everyday life. As a woman and an artist, I see beauty in the pedestrian. the pauper and the princess each have their special story, each story valid and worthy of expression, it is these expression of humanity that compel me to capture and translate their stories, their faces, their lives.


Her most recent body of work is focus on Women of Canada, namely "Rediscovered Women". This series is based upon photos Lorinda has gathered from antique shop spanning the east coast to the west coast of our beautiful country canada. Adding a splash of colour and a dash of humour, Lorinda breathes new life into these forgotten women, reimagining their lives and rediscovering their importance in our history.
