“Using ink and a collection of loved (unwashed and warped) calligraphy and bamboo pens and cheap brushes, I never erase and incorporate mistakes as often as they are made. This results in extra eyes on faces and the feeling of movement made by extra lines.” — Rebeca Raney

About the Artist

76328e53 0a7a 448a b0bf 2ee9dc1a86e4

Brooklyn-based artist Rebeca Raney’s (b. 1980) illustrations and sculptures evoke a whimsical, unpretentious expressiveness that appeals to wide audiences. Drawing mostly from her own memories, the artist creates quirky characters, which seemingly belong in an eternally happy world. In addition to her fine art practice, Raney teaches art to children and teens through the Joan Mitchell Foundation–a constant source of inspiration, as the “world of children and their imagination interests” the artist and greatly informs her practice. Raney holds a BFA from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), and a MFA from the School of Visual Arts (SVA) in New York, NY. Her work has been exhibited nationally and internationally in New York, Denmark, Switzerland, Japan, and Miami, and she has been featured in numerous publications including The New York Times, Miami Art Guide and Brooklyn Magazine.
