“I fell in love with the Carolina coastline and enjoy capturing the exquisite, vibrant light on the landscape with oils. It is an exciting challenge to mix just the exact hue that depicts a pale yellow in the sky at dusk or the lavender in a cast shadow. There is such power of expression that a single brush stroke can make, ultimately drawing the viewer in emotionally, so they feel the painting – not just see it.”
Lorraine (Lori) Dauphin moved to Myrtle Beach from Connecticut with her husband Roland, fourteen years ago. Lori has been drawing and painting from nature since childhood. She earned an Associate’s Degree graphic design/illustration at the Art Institute of Boston and spent several years as assistant Art Director for Davis & Geck. As a successful freelance designer and illustrator since 1994, she has integrated her pastel drawings into several design projects, and has appeared in The Directory of Illustration. Lori's pastels and oils also hang in businesses, private homes and small galleries throughout the Northeast and South Carolina including William H. Miller Gallery & Seacoast Artists Gallery. Ms. Dauphin was hired by an architectural firm to paint a large triptych painting for the main dining room of their client, Tupelo Honey, here in Myrtle Beach. Lori's oil paintings have been accepted into ARTFIELDS juried competition in Lake City, SC three of the last four years. Lori's submission for MB 2010 Food and Wine week poster competition, tied for third place.
