About RaniYoungArt

Sales 1
On Etsy since 2021

Artist, musician, designer.

I live and work in my art studio surrounded by the characters and scenes that originate in my mind and spill out onto my canvases, as if I am living within a book or a film. Born as a twin on Halloween, I have always been drawn to the idea of becoming a character as well as finding and expressing my own unique identity. I often utilize self-portraiture as a way of changing costume and working out that identity. I grew up painting, drawing, singing to myself, and reading Nancy Drew and Agatha Christie. I loved to feel like I was unraveling some mystery, and I still feel like I am doing just that when I'm figuring out how to depict something on canvas or create an effect I want using a technology tool. I have worked professionally as a graphic designer and a motion graphics/video artist, and my graphic sensibilities and interest in motion factor into my paintings. And, to an equal degree, my paintings have always felt like film stills. I hope you will enjoy stepping into these stories with me.
