About Fairy Lane

My enjoyment of art and drawing began as a child and has carried on into my adult years.
I find inspiration in everything I do and everyone I meet. 

1994 was when Fairy Lane began.
I started a stall at the Cleveland Bayside markets. I would make and sell everything from painted treasure boxes, wings, wands and so much more. People flew in from every direction to see Fairy Lane under the rainbow made of tulle.   It was definitely hard to miss.

1997 I was invited to entertain children at 'Mischief Makers' in Manly, Queensland. With parties for boys and girls of every age and many themes to choose from, no-one missed out. There were caves with mushroom houses and peep holes too, a Pirate ship with a slide and the biggest indoor sandpit you’ve ever seen! I shared many stories with the children then and still do to this day.

April 2000. Lorraine in 'Off with the fairies' article from the 'Kids in Brisbane' paper.

1999 Fairy Lane moved to ‘The Little Pink shop’ in Ormiston where we served Devonshire tea under the Moreton Bay Fig Trees for the Parents while the children attended a fairy party with friends.   We also held craft workshops for adults and children.  We even have a visit from a group called ‘The Eccentric Fairy Club’ who would travel all over Australia in search of Fairy Shops.

October 2001. Fairy Raine in The Sundays Mail 'What's Hot'.

2002. 'The Great South East' TV program approached me in 2002.  They had heard how much fun we had at Fairy Parties and asked if they could film me in action!  Fairy Raine from Fairy Lane appeared on a segment with Daniel Lightfoot's daughter, Paris dancing with Fairies in the Roma Street Parklands; so sweet.

December 2002. Fairy Raine is featured in the Wynnum Herald newspaper.

In 2007 I had decided it was time to 'hang up my wings' and teach younger Fairies the way of the 'Fairy Realm'. But the Fairy Tale did not end there, it continues to this day. Week after week I would be asked to attend special events and birthdays to which I couldn't say no. The enjoyment I receive from sharing in these special times is just as rewarding for me too. So the Fairy Tale continues .........

February 2007. A story about Fairy Raine retiring. But the Fairy Tale did not end, it continues to this day.

Year after year I face paint at the Folk Music Festival and 'Indigi Day out' event at Indigiscapes in Capalaba. This garden is one of my favourite places to visit. A great place for picnics and parties

November 2009. Fairy Raine is featured in the d'fine Redland Magazine 'A fairy tale' article.

Currently I work from home and bring my party props and paints to you.  I travel to all parts of the South East and beyond.  I have even been on a 'fairy hunt' with Australia's Govenor General and her Grandaughter!  No job is too big or too small.  I have been called upon to visit little ones and collect that last baby bottle or dummy that is no longer needed.

March 2010. Lorraine and family are featured in 'That's Life' magazine.

Recently my interest in face and body painting has developed beyond my wildest dreams!  There are many forms of art but there is nothing I am more passionate about than face and body painting. I love bringing to life a walking, living canvas of vibrant colours and dazzling designs.

May 2010. Lorraine is featured in a local newspaper.

In 2010 I entered my 1st competition at the Australian Body Art Carnivale held in Eumundi and won the 'People's Choice awards' in the Brush & Sponge category.  I look forward to my next competition but nothing thrills me more than the smile on a child’s face when they look in the mirror and view their transformation from child to cat or tiger or butterfly. 

 Serendipity..... an accidental lucky discovery
