Lorna lives and works in beautiful Otaki, Kapiti Coast, New Zealand. She loves designing tattoos that incorporate pattern and intricate line work in her preferred pallette of black and grey. 

Lorna was born in Auckland, NZ and spent 17 years in Western Australia from the age of seven. Always an 'artist-in-training', Lorna has spent 30+ years developing her artistic and creative style, to which she claims is "ongoing and evolving constantly". 

Lorna is currently exploring the possibilities of digital art and focussing on images of modern Maori women and their spirit.

Lorna did her art training in Australia and her teacher training in New Zealand some years later. Lorna now combines the benefits of both to understand what is important when it comes to her clients' tattoo ideas. She also gives thanks to a few important people that have mentored and inspired her to take this journey, her two children, her family -in particular her parents & two brothers, her supportive husband and another local tattoo artist.
