Lorraine Christie was born in Belfast in 1967 and is known as a self-taught painter. Lorraine’s work was showed widely in exhibitions throughout the United Kingdom and the United States. However, her paintings are particularly popular in Ireland.
Christie is known for having a wide range of techniques and styles but she is constantly paying particular attention to the emotion of her subject, through herself as an artist and the figures depicted in her work.
The Ulster Museum of Belfast holds some of Christie’s works as part of the museum’s permanent collection. Her paintings are also in many private and public collections all over the world.
