I have been using a flatbed scanner as a camera to photograph plants and natural objects for 20 years. My image on the directory wall, made in August, 2017, was composed mosaic style on the scanner’s glass. The theme of this photograph is finding joy in the beauty of nature and the necessity of play at every age.

“My oils are created on location as an expression of emotion manifested through the beauty of the landscape. A deep desire to partake in a dialogue with nature and a quest to infuse a moment of truth within the canvas is why I paint. It strive to imbue my work with the spirit of nature created in communion with the wind and sunlight itself".

My work revolves around the experience of human/object interaction with sculpture that contains meaning within its material form. Often holding symbolic presence, each work is deeply connected to human understanding. Processing emotions, responding to the world and provoking thought through tactile forms.

My works are expressionist depictions of people. I am intrigued by body language and unintentional communication – how gesture, posture, and, pose can inform us of a persons’ inner attitude. People watching and strangers inspire small-scale paintings while models depicted in specific, often symbolic, environments are the subject of larger narrative

I work primarily on the wheel, although I enjoy some hand building and sculptural detail on pottery as well. I love the swirl and twist and versatility of clay. My work tends to be functional because I want my objects to be useful as well as beautiful.
I became a potter in December, 2000, I remember the date because that is when I made over 200 of the same object to give as gifts for my daughter’s wedding. After that many hyacinth holders, many of which did not turn out, I was able to say, with pride, “I am a potter.”
My art school training was as a painter. However, I also do printmaking. My work is mainly "abstracted " I figurative, depicting both people and landscapes. In printmaking I often combine drawings made on the computer with traditional printmaking methods.

I also studied printmaking at Creative Arts workshop. I have shown my work throughout the Northeast and Pennsylvania in group juried shows and in many solo shows. I am a member of City Gallery.

This copper plate etching was inspired by a friend's gift to me of a 1940's bed jacket. Lacy, soft pink, very feminine. I could not resist its beauty. and so I did a soft ground etching by pressing the bed kjacket, lace and all, into my copper plate.
I walk in two worlds….in the world of academia where I am a Professor of Art Therapy and in a second world where I am a print maker. These worlds do intersect some of the time. And provide challenges as well. When I create art, I like to sit with the piece for a while and reflect upon what its voice is, and how it informs my life in some way,
Loughran's work engages the three elements of abstraction expression: the conceptual (idea/thought), expressive (emotion) and formal (color, line, composition). These elements work in concert as a piece emerges spontaneously over time on the canvas. Her recent work explores the complexity, impossibility, and process of human communication.

I believe in art as commentary on issues that we face at the moment. Sometimes artwork screams at these issues, but more often it hints at the artist’s personal interpretation of these societal issues. I create images that gingerly nip around the edges of the problem of how we fit as individuals, into a highly organized, complex society.
