Hello there and Welcome!
I'm CAROL LORRAINE, M.A., an Intuitive Artist, Joyful Spirit, Soul Guide, Master Colorist, Speaker, Author, Creativity Mentor, and Metaphysician.
I am passionate about awakening JOY, creativity, aliveness and authenticity in women like you so you can shine your inner radiance, your Soul's True Beauty.
While I am best known for my colorful inspiring artworks of circular mandala drawings and hand-painted Wearable Art "Soul Silks," my patrons, students, and clients tell me that they are inspired most because I model living authentically, courageously, and joyfully.
As a mentor to women in midlife transitions I will happily guide you to your JOY & FREEDOM, and to living a SOULFUL LIFE of purpose and passion. I lovingly mentor, and inspire people to live their soul's purpose, express their passion and make their dreams a reality. This is joyful living!
My philosophy is that you are the artist and your life is your work of art. That is what it means to be Alive! with Creating. I can support you because have been through several major life transitions myself from my 40's through my 60's. Life hasn't always been easy with relationships ending, health issues, and aging parents--situations that caused chaos and upheaval in my life.
I recreated and transformed myself each step of the way from the inside out. I called on my faith, courage, my Soul's True Self, friends and family. The support was amazing both inwardly and outwardly. Through the toughest challenges I learned to ask for support and I received it.
Now celebrating thirty years of living my vision, knowing my purpose, and what I'm passionate about, this is my message:
“You are one with the Creator, and you can co-create your life exactly as you want it.”
Over the last 30 years I am honored to have mentored and coached over 1000 people in my Alive! with Creating Coaching Programs, Creativity Workshops and Retreats, live events and weekend programs. My clients have transformed their lives and businesses into beautiful works of art that they love too!
In my career as an artist, designer, and teacher I have designed, produced and shown a line of art-to-wear specialty garments and won awards for my silk art. I've taught art, drama, and music at the elementary and college levels. Over the years, I enjoyed being interviewed on San Francisco Bay Area radio and television programs.
I am now living my vision in the beautiful Napa Valley in northern California. I delight in sharing the opportunity to be in the flow and experience paradise within!
My specialties include:
Celebrating the Entrepreneurial Spirit: Since 1987 My lifework has been as an entrepreneur specializing in life coaching, facilitating personal growth, and creating beauty that expresses women's inner radiance. I love working with creative women leaders who are champions of the human spirit!
Professional Life Coaching: Certified by the International Coach Federation in 1998, I trained through The Coaches Training Institute and Living Your Vision™ Enterprises. I love to support, inspire, and motivate people while keeping them focused on who they are and their life purpose.
Creativity: Earning my Master of Arts Degrees both in Costume Design and in Culture & Creation Spirituality, I use my talents in Color/Style design, costuming, mask-making, puppetry, watercolor and music, to awaken people’s joy and creativity and express their soul's purpose.
Wearable & Fine Art: Original hand-painted silk artistry. With rich, vibrant colors, sensual fabrics and motifs, and interesting textures, I strive to capture the passion and aliveness of the human spirit with my designs. I believe that “Life is our work of art and our clothing an outer expression of the inner spirit.”
Carol Lorraine Designs are painted with exuberant joy, a passionate free spirit, and a deep love for nature. I hope you'll experience an aliveness within you when viewing or wearing my exciting colorful silks.
I've been honored to have studied with many of the finest silk painters in the country and learned to draw healing luminous mandalas with Judith Cornell.
I combine my background with a Master of Arts in Costume Design and a Master of Arts in Creation Spirituality to create Joyful Wearable Art with Heart.
A certified teacher of all ages I've delighted in teaching art, drama, and music to children and adults for over forty years. My Creative Heart Playshops for women have been successful in helping people to explore and develop their creativity. I love to guide others to express their joy and authenticity through my transformational soul purpose life coaching programs, Blossom Into Your Soul's True Beauty.
A music lover, I delight in expressing my Soul by playing the piano, drums and percussion and singing in harmony with others.
Residing in the beautiful Napa Valley, California I paint from my home studio, inspired by the dynamic coastal mountains and breathtaking rich colors of the sprawling vineyards aglow with the changing seasons. I love spending time on the Big Island of Hawaii every year where I swim with the spinner dolphins, visits long time friends, and am inspired by the tropical beauty and colors!
