Loraine Brown & Norelle Thomas

Lorraine Brown is the premier artist of the Coomaditchie United Aboriginal Corporation. Lorraine is a Yuen/Jerrinjah woman born in Bega, one of 7 children. Lorraine views her ability to paint as a gift. She uses bold colours that reflect her coastal upbringing. “We’re East Coast Saltwater People”, Lorraine says. “My colours symbolise my life. I had a great childhood, great parents and family and extended family”.
 

Narelle Thomas is one of Lorraine’s sisters and they paint together. Lorraine does the fine work and Narelle fills in the details. Lorraine and Narelle work like professional dancers, one leads and the other follows and no-one steps on any toes. It is clear they have been working together for many, many years.
