Lorraine Peacock

Lorraine Peacock is a British artist, born in Huntington, Cambridgeshire, now living and working in London with strong links to the Potteries having studied and widely exhibited in the area. In 2022 Lorraine's work focused on a number of underground events happening, often fundraisers in London, including those run by Helen Roeten: Three Faces of Janique and Hidden Strength (Jess and Erhan), a fundraising event in support of Ukraine.

Lorrain attended North Staffordshire Polytechnic 1984-87 where she was tutored by renowned artists Enos Lovatt, Tony Wild and Arthur Berry. Her work has been exhibited in and around Stoke-on-Trent with fellow artist Jo Kent at: The Centrel Gallery in Leek, The New Vic Theatre in Newcastle-under-Lyme and at Keele University Gallery. More recently, Lorraine's work has been exhibited with the Islington Museum, Towel Hamlets local history library and archive and the Islington Arts Society.


"I do not work in a studio; instead I have a portable studio (it contains everything I need such as: crayon, oil pastels, pencils, market pens, palette knife and paper), which I carry to various venues such as: The Book Clue, The Kind's Head Private Member's Club, The Queen of Hoxton, The Hackney Attic and others. I chances upon several creative groups like: Art Macabre, Art Model Collective, Flesh and Bones, The London Drawing Group and Caberet Culture. These events were often experimental, offering an unusual take on a particular theme. Perhaps, more importantly, was the collaborations between artists and models and it is these unique individuals I want to capture in my work!

I begin by blocking large areas of colour, mapping the people and place; often working from the outside in, each mark informing the next. All the time watching, believing in my hand, working frantically and trying to make decisions very quickly. Often things go awry but I see it as part of the creative process. I need to respond; things might need to be changed or even scraped back with the palette knife! All too often, time is running out, I must up the temp once again and bring in a few lines which will reconcile the work.

It's crucial that I have the freedom to create what I see and in my own way. Hoepfully, by the end I capture a visual memory, some of the buzz and excitement about place(s) and the people I have met at these venues."
