Painter LORNA SCHEEPERS


Like many women in art, I embraced art as an adult, but it was not until I relocated

to the USA five years ago, that I started working as a full time artist.  


My creativity begins with an appreciation for the beauty in the everyday, often

reflecting my emotions and memories and interwoven with more idyllic and

imagined elements of the environment. Layers and a love for pattern informs my

practice.


I draw inspiration from my experience of living in between countries and continents,

exploring ideas of socialization and one’s sense of belonging.


Although not obvious, my art is always deeply personal and recollects memories of

time and place. Quite often birds stand in for the Self, but they have singular

meaning. I believe that to assume that, is as assuming that every person experience

the world in the same way.

My more recent mixed media works explore the dichotomy between new and old by

layering images from vintage magazines with current images or paint, thus creating

new narratives.


I am always trying to evolve and try not to feel tethered to a particular subject or

style, but rather let my work organically grow alongside me to reflect my personal

experiences.


Other than that, I don’t have any deep philosophical ideas about my art except that I

want to produce beautiful works that people will enjoy and be proud to have

hanging on their walls.
