When I was a child I was obsessed with all things reading and creativity. I also had (and continue to have) a passion for teaching.
I started painting and drawing when I was around six years old and spent a lot of time creating fun and whimsical portraits of people and animals.
In High School I created an after school program for young children geared towards the arts. This experience laid the foundation for what would eventually become Rae Wright Artistry.
When it came time to attend post secondary education I opted to study Early Childhood Education. Upon graduating, I worked in the field for a few years before deciding to return to study Children's Mental Health. I am passionate about art education and the importance it holds on a person's mental well-being.
Rae Wright Artistry began in 2015 as a photography business and over the years has evolved to art classes and custom paintings and drawings.
Since things changed in 2020 my focus has been geared more to custom portraits and DIY Kits.
This year, in 2022, after a number of requests, included in the shop you can now find prints, bookmarks, nursery decor, and more!
The Alphabet Book: A Billy & Rory Story published in September 2022. The book is a labour of love created for my children to help them learn about the alphabet.
Several new children's books are in the works!
When I'm not creating I can be found with my husband and children as we explore the parks, trails, and various local businesses in Guelph, ON.
What do I do for fun? All things arts, sports, and reading!
I love a good book recommendation. Know something amazing in fantasy, adventure, mystery, and historical fiction I'd love to hear it!
Stay Colourful and Paint On, My Friends
