  • Lorraine Turner


    As a young girl, motivational speaker and author/illustrator Lorraine Turner was told she would never make it as an artist yet went on to become a two-time Emmy winner for her work as one of the lead designers for the National Basketball Association’s Philadelphia 76ers. She has also created award-winning Children’s Activity Books and is a multiple Eisner Award nominee in her role as Art Director for the Library of American Comics. After surviving years of abuse she became a team leader for the first community Domestic Violence Response Team in New Jersey and helped the Attorney General’s Office form the police guidelines which are still being used today. At the age of 53 she left an unhappy marriage, stuffed her tiny car with all of her worldly possessions, swapped her trinkets for cash at a jewelry store, and drove over 1400 miles to Key West, Florida where she found a job on Craig’s list. She exchanged her high paying designer job for a clerk’s position in an art gallery. Today, with the help of meditation, she happily writes, illustrates, and teaches others to follow their dreams. She is a living testimony to the power of moving thoughts into action.
