Rae Missigman, mixed media artist, author and instructor is known for her vivid colors, intricate layering and signature repetitive art marks.
As an artist, Rae believes that creativity can be accomplished in bite sized pieces during even the busiest days. She focuses on embedding her distinctive mark on each piece leaving no doubt of its creator. Watercolor is her latest medium where she is bringing her unique viewpoint and love of layering to sheer color and composition.
As an instructor, Rae strongly encourages all artists to trust themselves to fearlessly do what they love. She champions a bold voice, continuing education and finding inspiration in the everyday. Rae co-teaches the best selling workshop Pocket Journals that is as wildly popular today as it was two years ago proving that quality education never goes out of style.
As a woman, Rae lives in central Florida within a large family of creatives. Her husband, Carl, is an integral helpmate who supports and encourages her crazy creative journey. She now shares her love of all things handmade with a new generation of young makers.
Rae authored Paint Play Explore: Expressive Mark Making Techniques in Mixed Media which details her journey into Art Marks. Her work can be found in countless publications including Faber-Castell industry catalogs, Where Women Create, Somerset Life, Art Journaling, and Romantic Homes.
