Whether sailing Alaska coastal waters or snorkeling Hawaiian shores, V Rae chronicles natural life through bold portraits that leap from the canvas to your heart. Defying convention in a startling fusion of color and negative space, V paints Freestyle Expressions that transport each personal encounter through time and space, sharing with the world her seamless blend of art, nature and individual personality. Like Humpback whales, V migrates between Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii each year painting from platforms frequented by her subjects.
Artist's narrative: Aleutians behind. Arctic ahead, pulled forward by choreogaphed strokes of memory past, in the gentle draft of my King Eider. He turns colors when I call him that, but I don't see the other girls nesting down with fresh mollusk pate on eelgrass and pinch of coastal algae. I just smile and thank my Proveider.
