Lorrie Hayman

Lorrie Hayman is an adventure seeker and art lover. A history and dance combined honours graduate, Lorrie now lives in Japan as an English and cultural exchange teacher. She enjoys exploring what Japan has to offer and learning more about her new home. Lorrie uses art in her daily life to break down cultural barriers and build strong relationships in her schools and communities. Art can be used a means of expression, where language can fail.

If I could say it in words there would be no reason to paint. - Edward Hopper

As a child, Lorrie was lucky enough to have her creativity nurtured and encouraged. Dance was her medium of choice, but she enjoys experiencing all types of art. Lorrie hopes to continue working in roles that allow her to encourage cultural understanding and celebration. She is looking forward to working with Artsmith to share her knowledge and experience of arts in Japan.
