Meet Your April Makers – Lorraine Shulba
What do you make?
I’m an artist and illustrator.
Why do you make what you make?
I love art and creating things people will enjoy. I love colour and expressing feelings and thoughts with my art.
Probably my poppy paintings, there is just so much joy and love when I create them. I am also working in a new series of “Queen” illustrations..they are so much fun and whimsical!
Pick your favourite local maker (besides yourself)!
I love people who make handmade items using wool and fabrics. I’m not a textile artist and really respect those who work in that medium.
What do you love about Edmonton?
I love the river valley and how there is so much awesome talent here in the city! I also love these markets that have popped up this spring now that winter is over. It’s great to see that Edmontonians love to support local makers and artisans!
