AIMEE RAYNER 

My love for art goes back as far as I can remember. Some of my earliest memories are of watching my father paint in his art studio. As I grew older, I decided I wanted to take a different path and went to school to study interior design. I love interior design and worked in the field for several years, but something was always missing. One day, I had the urge to paint again and all of my passion for art came rushing back. My life was forever changed and I knew this was my purpose. It is my mission to create from the heart, expressing the feelings inside of me. Life is too short to ignore what is in your heart and what you are meant to do in life.

My paintings are abstract interpretations from my visits in nature or peaceful moments drawn from my day to day life. My process is very intuitive and primarily consists using an unfocused eye and painting my subjects into loose abstract depictions. I love blending and merging colors together giving the impression of a soft “out of focus” texture. Every so often, I like to explore different mediums and painting techniques, but abstract art comes naturally to me. You will always find me painting to classical music, and part of my process is painting the music the way I feel it. For me, painting this way transforms my paintings into an emotional experience. I never really know how a painting will look in the end, but I trust in my process and know it will be something beautiful.

Through my work, I hope to transport viewers back to a calming time in their life or memories of a time surrounded by nature. I hope to help viewers forget about their everyday stresses and ground them by bringing a sense of peaceful reflection. Having personally dealt with anxiety, I know how important creating a calming environment can be. My goal is to create art that warms your home and soothes your soul.

I am currently creating in my home studio in Dallas, TX.
