Originally from Yorkshire, Rae studied art in Leeds, UK during the 1990s, gaining a BA (Hons) in Printed Textiles & Surface Pattern Design. ​ After having her two children and moving to Wiltshire she studied PGCE Art & Design at Bath Spa University. She qualified as an art teacher and worked within the special needs sector throughout her career. Whilst teaching, Rae led on co-ordinating links with schools in China, Jordan, Nepal and Brazil, enabling her to participate in reciprocal visits and igniting the designing of a collaborative global learning curriculum. Rae is also a Thrive Practitioner and lead on mental health initiatives in her most recent setting. Throughout her career Rae has been an advocate for the importance of promoting positive mental health and wellbeing, linking this to mindful activities and projects both inside and outside the classroom. ​ Having always painted whilst teaching, Rae was part of The Experimental Drawing Hub, Swindon and led on printing workshops for other artists. ​ Rae has always been fascinated by paint, textures, interesting surfaces and mixing colours. She loves to create the appearance of something that is worn and weathered by using paint and finds that acrylics enable her to build up layers which she can work back into. ​ Rae loves to travel and experience different cultures and has spent some time backpacking and working in various countries over the past thirty years. Much of her work is inspired by the Earth, nature & environment and patterns in the Universe that are repeated on different scales. Rae's work is often led by intuition and imagination, portraying images that are not seen with the eyes but that come from a place within.
