ABOUT

   
Lorraine DeProspo was born in Brooklyn New York, and currently shares her time between Montclair New Jersey and Provincetown Massachusetts.  She attended Kean College of New Jersey, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a degree in Fine Arts / Education, and furthered her studies at Montclair State University, focusing on ceramics and sculpture.  A body of work that encompasses oil paintings, ceramic art, and assemblage reflects a deep and reverent relationship with nature, with a particular affinity to sea, sky, and the elusive quality of fog.  Her painting style is minimalist, with a meticulous blending of color that produces a moody, ethereal feel that defines her style.  Her seascapes are definitely not art imitating nature, rather a visual interpretation of the feeling of the experience.  Likewise, her ceramic art and assemblage celebrate the sea, and her artistic vision continues a sharp focus on capturing the essence of what is ​felt more than seen.

Lorraine's paintings are included in the permanent collection of Memorial Sloan Kettering Hospital, as well as with individual collectors in New York, New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Maine.  She was chosen by the Monmouth Museum in 2016 as one of six "emerging artists", and was awarded her first solo show at the Museum.  She has also exhibited both paintings and sculptures in solo, two-person, and invitational group shows in the New York Metropolitan area and Massachusetts.  Her website was selected for review early in 2018 by the Woven Tale Press, followed by a feature in the Magazine in May of 2018.  Lorraine is a member of Studio Montclair, Inc., The Jersey Artist Registry, and Mud & Soul Clayworks in Fairfield New Jersey.  She is shown by Windsor Gallery in Colts Neck New Jersey, and represented by Imlay Gallery in Montclair New Jersey.
