Lorna Crane is a true Australian Contemporary Artist living on the beautiful Sapphire Coast of NSW.
Lorna came to teach at Fibre Arts Australia after I saw an ABC documentary about her retreat on Bruny Island in Tasmania… her work was innovative and exciting and the brushes that Lorna made had never been done at a Fibre Arts event before… so how could I resist not asking her!!
Lorna’s live workshops with Fibre Arts Australia are very popular and sell out fast!
Well known as being “The Brushmaker” Lorna sources materials from her natural environment including driftwood, bamboo, organic fibres along with found objects making unique rudimental and utilitarian brushes in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Below we have a chat to Lorna and learn a little more about her life as an abstract artist and her love for Fibre Art.
