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: One of my favorite spots in Alaska is Prince William Sound, where rafts of sea otter roll with their pups, dive for yummy crustacean treats and pop from the sea in fuzzy faced curiosity over the grinning, teary-eyed lady in the bright yellow kayak. What a gift.
