As an artist, Lorna Carmen McNeill works to unite newer light, digital and interactive technologies with fine art and sculpture to create kinetic installations and artworks of all sizes. Her final pieces are the manifestation of extensive sensory experimentation via multiple techniques across drawing, painting and sculpture, exploring corresponding body movements, and a range of animation methods through light and kinetic technologies.
Informed by a previous career as a health professional, through her artwork and teaching Lorna aims to create inspiring spaces and immersive experiences to facilitate others to unlock their creativity and improve mental, physical and spiritual well-being. For an artist’s statement, see: www.lornacarmenmcneill.com/about.
