Lorraine Watry, NWS Freelance Artist
Watercolors, Graphics, Illustrations

Lorraine Watry as a watercolor artist and illustrator frequently depicts quiet, peaceful moments with a goal of drawing the viewers in and giving them a place to relax and imagine. Her art work is often noted for its realism, elegance, and technique. Lorraine has developed a painting style that can be classified as colorfully idealized realism. Her use of vibrant colors, strong lights and darks, and detailed patterning in her watercolor painting makes her work an excellent choice for many applications. Lorraine is an award winner with paintings juried into many National and International shows. Lorraine enjoys passing on her knowledge of watercolor and has taught classes from beginner to advanced. Although Lorraine  loves to express her vision through watercolor, she is also adept at creating commercial works with computer graphics and readily communicates the vision of her clientele.

Lorraine can create the perfect piece for any purpose, including:

  • Original watercolors to decorate your home, office, or place of business
  • Advertising
  • Logos
  • Portraits
  • Children's picture books
  • Note Cards and Art Reproductions
