Lorna is known for her artistic and creative ability – she is an artist in many respects as demonstrated through the beautiful subdivisions, streetscapes, designs and colours in the drawings she creates for our clients.
“My goal is to create drawings that are both appealing and functional. In essence, I’m looking for the “WOW” factor! To accomplish this, I work closely with the client and the planner to determine needs. Once I have my “pallet” of needs, my creativity brings life to the “canvas”.”
Lorna is Chair of the school council in the neighbourhood where she lives and the school that her children attend.
