As a self taught, contemporary, award winning artist, Loretta expresses her visions in a spontaneous and direct fashion . Acrylic and glaze mediums are layered, subtracted and manipulated using various palette knives, brushes and scrapers to synthesize an intricate and distinct tableau.

Colours and shapes take on an energy of their own and each subsequent layer of texture and colour she adds reinterprets her thoughts and emotions.

Her recent series explores the connection between the Sky, Middle Earth and the Underworld.

Loretta works with the passion that her motifs, their essence, will provoke, inflame or simply stimulate the mind's eye of the observer.
