Lorraine Ermacora

Oil on canvas

This portrait is of my sister Lorraine Ermacora a local beef and sheep farmer, and is one of a series of portraits illustrating local family members in art and community activities. Lorraine has been a long-term Women in Agriculture member, held the organisation’s National Treasurer role and has supported women to develop confidence in their farming knowledge. She has travelled to Women in Agriculture conferences in China, England, Spain and the USA exchanging knowledge about women’s farming experiences. Now semi-retired she continues her community activities organising local events for Women in Agriculture, has a beautiful garden and now grows garlic which she sells at local markets.
