Rae West

Placeholder
Rae West

Born: 1971

Hometown: Napier

Based in: in Haumoana

 

West's works pulse with the kinetic freedom of fluidity and light. She uses multiple veils of pigment, resin and ink, which blend and react against each other creating beautiful forms and textures. The end results are spontaneous, subconscious, and sensual.
Her work is broadly collected, and can be found in private collections throughout Australasia, Europe and USA.
She has been a full time artist for nearly 20 years, before that she was a graphic designer in Sydney. She has lived and worked in Colorado, Scotland, England, Australia, and now lives by the sea in a small village called Haumoana on the east coast of North Island, New Zealand.
In the last two years she has spent some time over in Ghana and Tanzania volunteering for Global Mamas and Give a Heart to Africa. Helping empower disadvantaged women in small business ventures.
