Lorraine Wells

Lorraine is a California native going back 5 generations, She was born in the San Joaquin Valley, raised in Salinas and currently living in the Bay Area of California. Her career started with a box of Crayola crayons and advanced to painting 4x8 sheets of plywood and cleaning brushes for her sign maker step-father. She learned the art & craft of brush lettering, gold leafing and silk screening at his side, then earned a fine art degree in design from California College of Arts and Crafts (now CCA) in Oakland, CA. Her career has included most forms of Graphic Art, Advertising Art, Logo Design, Sign Making, and more. Her fine art career has included Watercolor, ink, pencil drawing, and some oil and acrylic painting; which took a backseat to my commercial career until I retired. “I have a lifelong love for our constantly changing California landscape which I try to capture in the fluidity and transparency of watercolor. Whenever possible, I like to include elements that offer local character to my paintings and there is always an element of my designer background present.”
