She has a passion for colours, typography, illustration and painting. For several years now, she has been practicing traditional bookbinding and calligraphy. Having received several grants from the Canada Council and the ministère de la Culture et des Communications du Québec, the artist has exhibited her mixed media work both in Canada and in Europe. A plastic arts teacher at Dawson College and at the Montréal Visual Arts Centre, she has also worked as a graphic designer in Vancouver, Winnipeg and Montréal.
Lorna Mulligan teaches by using simple, concrete projects, starting with an explanation and short demonstration. She inspires the students to explore their own creativity while she helps and directs them individually. Her students are always very inspired by their own creations, their progress and their newly discovered abilities. ln using the making of a small book as the project for this workshop, she combines her primary interests and skills of bookbinding, calligraphy, graphic design and painting/illustration. This makes for an exciting project where she is able to convey her enthusiasm and creativity to the students.
