Lorry Wedding-Marchioro lives and works on a small property in the Adelaide Hills. She has been working as a professional artist for over 20 years, primarily as a sculptor in glass and metal. She finds the act of painting a way of testing her ideas in a free and spontaneous manner,.
Lorry is currently completing her Master's of Fine Arts at Monash University, with a research focus on how we view reality. Her areas of interest are Quantum Physics, consciousness studies, neuroscience and its resonance with the natural world.
Her work has been exhibited extensively and she has been selected several times to create Public Art commissions. Over the years her artwork has been collected both Internationally and within Australia.
