Biography and Statement
Loraine Veeck is a native Californian, presently living in the Los Angeles area. She received her education in art from California State University in Northridge. Her mentor was Alice Beamish from whom she learned the importance of spatial concepts, movement, color, and allowing the intuitive flow of creativity.
Her work is, in part, about isolation, and in part, about the idea of infinity. In our crowded world, some of us work hard to escape and isolate. Loraine strives to convey the mood she finds in some of these still uninhabited areas. The Southwest is a place she favors for painting the raw earth colors, the simplicity, and the unique energy found in the western landscape.
Veeck has been given many solo exhibitions in galleries throughout Los Angeles and southwestern United States. She has also exhibited in invitational and juried shows for several years and has won many awards including a residency grant through the Wurlitzer Foundation..
