“It is said that a truly creative person expresses their creativity with every medium they touch.  Lorrie Potvin possesses that kind of creativity, and in abundance.  Powerful prose, exquisite carvings, stunning sculptural work:  each show her artistry.  She often works with what seem like the hardest of materials — wood, stone, steel — and yet through those materials, she breathes  life and soul into the inanimate, giving voice to the materials as they tell their own story.  For ultimately, Lorrie is a story teller and a teacher.  Spending time with Lorrie, with her writing, or working alongside her, there is listening, there is learning, there is love.”

Rena Upitis, Professor of Arts Education, Queen’s University and President, Wintergreen Studios
