Lorna Penner, a celebrated silk painter from Northern British Columbia, draws inspiration from the natural beauty of the North and the saskatoon berry to create unique and inspiring works of art that capture the essence of the northern wilderness.

The Thriving Silk Painter of Northern BC, Lorna Penner, is a visual storyteller. Artists are storytellers, and there is a process hidden from the world that happens in an artist and results in the piece of art we see. So, let us look into the story of the silk scarf painted by Lorna Penner.

Lorna is a celebrated artist with a passion for life and the Northern wilderness, producing exceptional works of art that capture the beauty and spirit of her surroundings. However, her latest silk painting, "Into the Forest," is currently showcased at the Winter Juried Art Show at the Dawson Creek Gallery. Lorna's art is not only breathtaking but also inspiring, reflecting her unwavering dedication to her craft, her love for the natural world, and her unique artistic vision. Therefore, her talent and creativity are unmatched, making her a true force to be reckoned with in the art world.

For Lorna, the saskatoon berry is not only a delicious and nutritious fruit but also a source of inspiration for her silk paintings. Furthermore, the Saskatoon is a sweet, nutty-tasting berry loaded with antioxidants, high in Vitamin C and fibre, and native to North Western Canada. Lorna loves picking, preserving, and painting this delightful berry growing at Penner's Patch, where her dog, Cookie, is always a helper when picking saskatoons. Cookie loves them too! Lorna is so thankful for the bounty of berries provided for us in the north!

The place she lives is inspiring her to create unstoppable works of art that capture the essence of the northern wilderness, from berries to northern lights, landscapes, and people.

"As I begin each day and look out the window, I feel so thankful to be living this beautiful life in the north. It is these moments that I want to capture and share through my creative process. So, I am appreciative and grateful for feeling connected to the earth and nature, making choices of design, technique, and colour that depict how I see my world."

Lorna's creative process begins with the natural world around her. Consequently, she takes inspiration from the colours, textures, and shapes of the northern landscape, which she then translates onto silk through various painting techniques. Lorna's silk paintings are rich in detail and colour, capturing the beauty and essence of the natural world in a way that only silk paintings can.  

Through her art, Lorna hopes to inspire others to appreciate the beauty of the natural world and to feel a sense of connection to it.

What a beautiful piece! Very interested in the artistic process and art as storytelling and how a vision materializes into an object. I also like Saskatoon berries, specifically in pies.
