Lorraine Abernethy's life could be described as a life long passion for art. She has always had a commitment to art from an early age, whilst growing up in the Tweed. In her early years she resided in Sydney and North Queensland. Lorraine currently lives in Kingscliff Northern NSW, where her studio is located. Her artwork has been described.. “she maintains a sense of adventure and experimentation in keeping with younger artists”. More recently her work has evolved to include different mediums for a more fluid expression of imagery and that of her studies in art therapy. The art of inward looking, outward reaching, a new attention to energy and stillness Abernethy explores the surface of life through her work, scratching away at the layers, reaching beneath to reveal that which is glimpsed. As the artist Louise Bourgeois says “I've been to hell and back. And let me tell you it was wonderful.” At art college Lorraine studied under artist/teachers: Elizabeth Cummings, Margaret Woodward, Clem Millward, Bela Evanyi, Madelaine Halliday, Ron McBurnie and Judy Watson to name a few. Her influences in her early years were: Bonnard, Monet and Munch. In more recent times women artists such as Kahlo, O'Keefe, Bourgeois, Julie Rapp and Judy Watson. Also the writings of: Joseph Campbell, mythologist. Teaching has become a large part of her life. Teaching art in its many forms, assisting people on their explorative, creative journey. Lorraine has found educating a very satisfying and life enriching experience. She has been an educator/teacher at TAFE and privately for over 25 years. . Art has been Lorraine's companion as far back as she can remember. In life's often unpredictable journey, she has become aware of how art can be a way for personal healing and insight. Together with this understanding and through Lorraine's studies in Transpersonal Art Therapy, she has developed workshops called “ Art as Healing.” Here, in a safe and supportive environment Lorraine accompanies the participant, assisting them to gain awareness and insight revealing their true authentic self. Letting go of the thinking mind and connecting to intuition, wisdom and creating a new paradigm, a new myth to live by. These workshops, although they are using art as the tool to assist in awareness, the emphasis is always the creative journey. Therefore it is not a necessity for the participant to have any previous art experience.
