Photographing people has been my passion since I took my first photography course in college. Over the four decades since, my visual fascination with the uniqueness of each individual has persisted. We all have the same components, yet each face (and life) is different.  My portraits aim to honor that uniqueness. 

Recently, I have been drawn to more tactile realms.  I am working with monotypes, encaustic collages, encaustic monoprints, acrylic abstracts, mixed media collages, and altered books.  Combining these different mediums offers me endless possibilities for exploring my creativity.


Portraiture by Lorraine is hung on the walls of homes throughout the world.  Her work has been exhibited extensively in solo and group shows in Humboldt County, the Bay Area and Sacramento.  The Senior Resource Center, the Job Market and the Peter Palmquist Collection at Yale University’s Beinecke Library all have permanent collections of Miller-Wolf’s photography.

Alongside her own artistic endeavors, Lorraine teaches photography and altered book classes through the Humboldt State University Extended Education program and Eureka Studio Arts.

“To photograph is to confer importance.  To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s mortality, vulnerability, mutability.”                                                                             

“You can't use up creativity.

The more you use, the more you have.”
