She graduated from San Diego State University in 2012 with a BA in Applied Arts & Sciences with an emphasis in printmaking and painting, and a minor in Women's Studies. She worked as an Assistant Preparator, Gallery Educator and Teaching Artist with the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, and as a Teaching Artist with Arts for Learning San Diego.

Lorain’s pedagogical approach takes on a social justice framework as she invites students to consider their surroundings and to examine the social and political realities that impact them as individuals and their communities. Her personal practice as an artist challenges dominant discourses around refugees, investigates relationships of power, and explores art as an instrument for healing.
