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: I believe in free expression. No surprise, considering the freedom expressed in my expressions. Growing up I was entranced by the colors and composition of nature. I felt the warm embrace of a loving creator; an author of life who couldn’t be contained in the branding box of science or theology any more than my passion could be confined to paint-by-numbers. I hear trees clap, mountains sing and joyfully dance with as many expressions of creation as I can wrap my heart around along the way.
