Lorraine Haxton


Colorado StreamFollowing high school, I attended Indiana University in Bloomington with the intention of acquiring a BFA degree, transferring to the Herron School of Art in 1975 for a deeper emphasis on painting. During my school years I studied with William Itter, Robert Berkshire, Philip Nicholson and Harry Davis. I was exposed to printmaking and sculpture as well as drawing and painting.

Life intervened and in 1979 I went to work at Indiana Historic Landmarks as a paste up artist for their ongoing architectural survey of Indiana counties. I Sorrowlater worked as a paste up and graphic artist for various commercials agencies in the 1980’s.

I returned to serious painting in 2007 and find myself becoming increasingly productive. I work mainly in acrylics, but also in oils, and have found inspiration in the works of Van Gogh, Cezanne, Schiele and Kokoschka. I have sold several works and look forward to continuing my growth as an artist at the Sugar Creek Art Center.

My existence is a perpetual surprise, and my art is a reflection of my existence. “Truth and Beauty” is more than a slogan, it is a goal to be devotedly pursued. My art works are steps along the winding path to that goal.
