Lorna is a multi-disciplinary artist and qualified teacher. She has been involved in creative facilitation for some time. Her artwork is immersive, sensory and experiential. She has exhibited widely and received several Arts Council and other Awards to develop her own artwork and for community development. Lorna originally trained and practised as a Clinical Nutritionist and Health Behaviour Change trainer within the NHS, community, research and the private sector. She worked extensively with psychologists, training health professionals in core counselling skills, cognitive, behavioural and motivational strategies for achieving lifestyle change. She has taught and run innovative courses on art and well-being in the NHS, Further education, Art Colleges, Universities, Schools and the Corporate world.
Lorna recently founded Arts Medicine Lab as a platform for experimental collaborations and has taught workshops across multiple art forms (including visual art, sound, voice, music, movement, dance, words). It fosters a dialogue between different art practices to cultivate improved health. Arts Medicine Lab works to achieve immersive experiences to facilitate deeper connection, stillness and expression.
