Lorraine Bubar is an artist, art educator, and a passionate advocate for the arts. She is a native of Los Angeles and received her B.A. from U.C.L.A. She studied animation at Yale University and her short independent films won numerous awards at animation festivals around the world. Lorraine worked for many years in the animation industry, animating television commercials, special effects for feature films, and feature film titles. During that time, she exhibited her watercolor paintings in numerous art exhibitions. These narrative paintings always included her animation sensibilities: the passage of time and the anticipation of something about to move. She was the featured artist for a calendar published by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Drawing on her experience in the animation industry, she began a teaching career, first teaching animation at The Academy of Entertainment and Technology at Santa Monica Community College. Following that, Lorraine taught drawing, painting, and printmaking to middle and high school students at Windward School in West Los Angeles. She is currently an exhibiting artist at TAG, The Artists’ Gallery in Bergamot Station in Santa Monica and at Chemers Gallery in Tustin, CA. She is also an active member of The Guild of American Papercutters, Women Painters West, and The Fine Arts Council of The American Jewish University.
