About RaineyDeweyArt

Hi I'm (Lorraine) Rainey Dewey, artist, mother, daughter, sister, friend and child of God. I live, work and paint in Upstate New York having moved here with my parents and four siblings in the late 1960’s.

Looking back I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t drawing or painting something. In the early days it was horses, mushrooms and ballerinas. Then in 1987 – at the urging of my mother – I signed up for an adult education art class. I assumed oil painting would be the medium of choice and so I dug out my very old paints, some very old brushes and off I went. That first class was a surprise in so many ways.

Surprise #1 – watercolor would be the medium of choice (I’d never seriously considered painting with watercolor) and Surprise #2 this watercolor class would unleash an unquenchable passion for creativity – no matter the medium. There would be no turning back, nor would I want to turn back. Much joy, peace and satisfaction has come from the creative process.

With my formal education being limited to high school art and adult ed classes I would consider myself to primarily self-taught. What comes is a product of trial and error and, of course, this gift of creativity bestowed upon me by God. I am grateful every day for this blessing.

As for my artist style – I consider myself a realist with abstract influences – for within each realistic work there can be found multitudes of abstract design.

I am blessed to have received awards for my watercolor and graphite work from time-to-time and while it is great to be recognized the real joy is in the creative process.
