Artist bio:

Lorena Torres Loaiza was born in Bogota, Colombia, and grew up in Canada. She works in comics, illustration, theatre design, and fiction, sometimes crossing artistic disciplines within a single project. All her work has a quirky visual style and some speculative or fantasy elements. She’s interested in flawed characters solving problems and hope as an active process.

Lorena has a Creative Writing certificate from the University of Toronto. Several of her short stories have been published in Syntax and Salt, AntipodeanSF, POMEgranate magazine, and the Toronto Comics: Yonge at Heart and Wayward Sisters comic anthologies. She has recently developed a comics-based art installation, with the support of the Theatre Centre exploration residency and the 2021 CAMINOS theatre festival.  Currently, she is exploring VR, miniature Lambe Lambe puppetry, and storytelling as new disciplines to combine with her existing skillset. She can be found @lorenatorresloaiza on Instagram or at lorenatorresloaiza.com.
Be sure to watch our instagram for updates on the residency as well as view Lorena’s Instagram take over this past month!

This residency program is produced with the support of the City of Toronto through the @torontoartscouncil
