Lorna graduated from Saint Louis College (now Saint Louis University) in the Philippines with a degree of Bachelor of Science in Commerce, major in banking and Finance. She has also taken a basic programming course in Systems Technology Institute (STI) Philippines. Lorna and her husband had no formal art training and had never attended any painting classes, other than their art classes in elementary and high school. They taught themselves how to paint and have developed their own styles and techniques.
Lorna had been a very active student, during her school days. She liked joining contests, especially art contests, even winning places in some of them. She had won places in flower making contests, as well as, in cooking contests. She had also helped friends in making art works for their projects/assignments.
Lorna has always been an art enthusiast and a nature-loving/environmentally friendly individual. She likes to collect seemingly worthless items and to turn them into unique works of art. She had collected fruit and vegetable seeds of varying sizes and color. She had dried them and put them into long empty bottles, which she displays in their living room. She has decorated their town home with unimaginable and unique art works made from materials such as chocolate wrappers, used stamps, stones, strings, broken beads, and even crab shells. She also knows how to sew and cross stitch, and has even designed some of her own dresses. She likes photography, dancing, singing and playing her flute and piano/organ.
