21 SECRETS Conversations with Lorraine Bell
Published on February 18, 2015
21 SECRETS Conversations is a weekly interview series where I ask one of my 21 SECRETS teachers every Wednesday:
What has your journey as an artist been like?
From art school graduates to self trained sensations, to tender newbies — each artist has an inspiring story to share that is filled with joy, challenges, and a creative spirit that keeps on flowing!

Today our special guest is Lorraine Bell.
Lorraine Bell is a self-taught Mixed Media Artist. Lorraine resides in Windermere, Florida on the beautiful Butler Chain of Lakes. A recent empty nester, she fills her time painting, traveling, and writing. She combines all three hobbies to create illustrated art journals bursting with her adventures on the road. Lorraine is the owner of Serendipity Studios and one of the 5 members that make up the Collaborative Team of ART TO THE 5th. She is the creator of the visual calendar/journal that was the inspiration for The Documented Life Project. Lorraine has been involved in the Art Industry for over 25 years. She owned an Arts & Crafts Supply Store in the Cayman Islands for 10 years and hosted numerous events that showcased local artists. She is constantly studying art and looking for new ways to expand her creative abilities.
Lorraine’s Catholic faith keeps her grounded and often inspires her art. She is a lover of all things random, serendipitous and spontaneous. Besides being with her family, she would rather be creating with her friends than doing anything else on earth!
