Lorraine Roy

Dundas, ON

Working in textiles since 1986, Lorraine’s initial studies were in Horticultural Science.  This has inspired her unique textile work which explores the mythology and symbolism of trees and biological systems.  By combining applique, machine collage, and embroidery she uses colour and pattern to develop her imagery.  Lorraine has participated in numerous group and solo shows and her exhibition ‘Woven Woods’ has been touring across Canada since 2017.  She is the recipient of several awards including a Canada Council Mid-Career Grant, an OAC Project Grant, and the City of Hamilton Arts Award for Fine Craft.
