Born and raised by parents who emphasized the importance of the arts, Lorina began studying art and design from an early age. Her vigor for creativity and artistic expression was cultivated even further when she studied art in the Netherlands at the Amsterdam School of the Arts. After living and studying in the Netherlands for over a decade, Lorina and her family moved to the US and settled in the DC area in 2005.
Lorina continues to create and instruct here in Southern Maryland through her private studio, Art Smart Studio, in Bryans Road, Md. Her pupils range from children to adults at all skill levels.Her exhibit titled, Eclectic Journeys: A Visual Account of Life, on display at the Southern Maryland Creative Cultural Center is reflective of a range of times and places throughout Lorina's artistic exploration and career. The exhibit is reflective of everything from figurative to abstract artworks that all wrestle with the dilemmas of connecting a physical world with numerous abstract ideas.
