Welcome to Empress Books, website home of journalist, author, artist, artisan and all-around crafter, Lorraine Dmitrovic.

I’m inspired by nature and by traditional and classic styles in art and fashion. The world is a wide realm of creative influences, from rustic to elegant, historic to contemporary, foundational to futuristic, and reality to dreams.” ~ Lorraine Dmitrovic

LORRAINE DMITROVIC: THE SURREALITY OF IT ALL…. FILM, BOOKS, THE ARTS
when you want a dream to be real, and the real to dream….

https://lorrainedmitrovic.wordpress.com/about/

“I am a writer foremost, and an artisan painter and jeweller living in Roseneath, Ontario, Canada. Formerly a journalist from and born in Toronto, I have lived in beautiful Northumberland County for over 25 years.

“My artist’s statement:
If you are an artisan, day is night and night is day. You forget to eat. You sometimes force yourself to make time for your family and friends. Your blank canvas or page before you demands the closest of relationships and can be a jealous lover. The paint on your brush or fingers, the keyboard, is the medicine that heals you, and heals others through your visions when they look at your completed works. You look in the mirror and you can only see an artist at work always. If not painting or writing, your subconscious is absorbing your environment and your mindset for your next brush to canvas outing or the next word to emerge. If we sleep, our arts will wake us up and draw us magnetically to the creative pleasures and discoveries of the day. We are alive because we are creating out of ourselves and putting ourselves on the canvas or the printed page. We perceive our surroundings and exhale magic ….”
