First of all thank you for taking the time to get to know me and what the TR brand is all about. 


About me…

I’m Lorraine, creator, writer, and designer of all things TenaciousRed. 

I am a proud Canadian who resides in our beautiful nations capital of Ottawa along with my husband and two kids (9 &11).

For the past 5 years, I was an Executive Assistant to some of Ottawa’s leading decision makers. Although I enjoyed certain aspects of my job, I always felt like I was meant to be doing something else. Something that would utilize my creative and interpersonal skills better. 

The opportunity came to me this past summer 2017 when I was laid off. It was an awakening moment for me. I saw this as THE opportunity to a life that I had been wanting and dreaming of for the longest time. A life where I make the decisions and call the shots. It is also a great outlet for the creative side of my personality. 

Some fun facts about me:

  1. I love good strong coffee and french pastries. Together or seperate doesn’t matter.
  2. Love, love good Italian food and good wine.
  3. Anything to do with nature I adore. Its fabulous!
  4. Have been in love with makeup since I could walk.
  5. I am only 5 ft 1.
  6. I speak French as a second language.
  7. I am a huge old movie fan! Doris Day, Frank Sinatra, Gene Kelly oh yah!
  8. I own 67 pairs of shoes (and growing).
  9. Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day.
  10. Love European sport cars.

What is Tenacious Red?

When I began the brainstorming process for my brand, I knew that I wanted something strong, bold, classy, and that would be built on a foundation of integrity. 

This website and brand is designed for women who are looking to feel better about themselves through beauty, self reflection, personal development and a community of like-minded readers.
