Welcome to Montville Art Gallery

Lorraine Burns
Lorraine Burns was born in Melbourne. After completing a course in dressmaking, she began a career as a seamstress, but in 1990 the urge to paint became strong and she enrolled in a course in tonal painting as a hobby. In the next year, she won her first art prize which encouraged her to develop her talent as an artist. Lorraine now works full-time in her studio. Lorraine loves to take ordinary, commonplace objects such as a pumpkin or a simple tea towel and, with the help of clever lighting, turn them into the extraordinary, producing strong, colourful still life paintings. Her beach scenes are less formal using crisp bright colours capturing children having fun at the waters edge. Lorraine draws inspiration from the Sunshine Coast beaches, particularly Noosa, for her beach scenes. She endeavours to capture a sense of playfulness that is typical of children when they "hit the beach" with their endless energy and joyful laughter. Since her first award in 1990, Lorraine has won in excess of 150 awards and commendations including "Best in Show" in both the Frederick McCubbin prize in 2001 and the "Year of the Outback" at Balranald in 2002. Recently Lorraine won Best Painting at Chelsea Rotary and Best Painting at the RSPCA Art Show.Lorraines paintings can be found in both private and corporate collections throughout Australia, New Zealand, USA, Japan Europe and Britain.
