Who's teaching at She Scrapbooks....

Lorraine Bell Artist.Wanderer.Dreamer A self-taught Mixed Media Artist, Lorraine resides in Windermere, Florida on the beautiful Butler Chain of Lakes. A recent empty nester, she fills her time painting, traveling, and writing. She combines all three hobbies to create illustrated art journals bursting with her adventures on the road. Lorraine is the owner of Serendipity Studios and one of the 5 members that make up the Collaborative Team of ART TO THE 5TH. She created a visual calendar/journal that is the inspiration for The Documented Life Project, a year -long undertaking that encourages the concept of visual and written chronicles of your daily life. Lorraine has been involved in the Art Industry for over 25 years. She owned an Arts & Crafts Supply Store in the Cayman Islands for 10 years and hosted numerous events that showcased local artists. She is constantly studying art and looking for new ways to expand her creative abilities. She is a lover of all things random, serendipitous and spontaneous. Besides being with her family, she would rather be creating with her friends than doing anything else on earth!
