Artist of the month

Post by SuzySparkles on Thu Dec 15, 2011 4:44 pm

Hey guys, we are doing a new Artist of the month for our newsletters!! This month I chose Rae because she is so creative and I love her work! Here is the rest of her interview and I hope you enjoyed her step by step photos!

Take Care!

Suzy


"Goodness, I canít imagine anyone being interested in a little babble about me, but since I was asked Ö..Hi, my name is Raelene. Iím the owner and artist of Raeís FX. Iíve only been in business a few months, but started painting earlier in the year. I promised myself this was going to be the year of change for me, and Iím happy to say it most certainly has been! Iíve accomplished so many firsts this year, and Iíve really stepped outside of my comfort zone. I left my job of twenty years at the end of last year and was in search of something completely different, fun, positive, challenging and if I could combine creativity in there somewhere too, that would be awesome. By chance Iíve managed to fulfill all those dreams with the discovery of face painting! WOW, I just love this world! This is exactly what my soul has been craving. I canít believe I wasted twenty years in such a soul destroying environment that was my old job. Canít change that now, just happily moving forward, repairing and feeling fabulous. My business is finally finding some legs and Iím super excited to be out and about, confronting my fears and spreading some joy along the way! Iíve thoroughly enjoyed my journey in face painting so far and I have the discovery of Metinaís Forum and all of your inspiring talent, generous help, support and encouragement to thank for it. I never felt alone in trying to figure things out. In fact, Iím doubly lucky, because I get even more support and encouragement from all of my family, especially my hubby!! Donít know what next year will bring, but I hope to continue having fun, growing and learning in this new fun creative world Iíve stumbled into.


I was asked to produce two new creative designs! (yikes) I targeted boy designs since I have half as many boys designs myself. One is an alien which Iíll be using in an upcoming gig (the mouth part is Wolfe brothers inspired), but I think maybe it could be simplified to become more workable and the other is a very workable design. Love one stroke! Hope you like."

Suzy, that's a very good choice.
And Rae is not just a very talented and creative painter, she is also very kind and has a great sense of humor. Look at these two designs above! Fantastic.
And I bet she is thinking 'no, that's not about me' when she reads this, but YES Rae this is you! cheers

I havn't seen you on the forum latley I assume you are bogged down with a massive amount of clients - which aside from being artist of the month you also deserve.

I think Rae was an excellent choice! Obviously uber talented... it amazes me how quickly she has not only developed her skill, but her own unique designs as well. It won't be long before she's snapped up by Hollywood! And we can all say, we knew her when....

Embarassed wowzer! you guys, OMG I don't know what to say! Thank you so much. You're comments and support have really moved me. You are all so extradordinarly generous. Thank you thank you. This whole experience has totally spun me out...in a good way. Very Happy aaahhh I'm really stumped for words! I'm still shocked I was even asked! ((hugs to you all)) this means so much. I love you

I have been pretty busy of late and have only been stopping in for a quickie browse around. The start of summer, our big school holiday break and Christmas all at once = crazy busy times. At home with the kids for the next 6 weeks, so I might be able to pop in a bit more.

santa I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas with your families. I'm heading to the beach with mine!! Love to ya all. ox
