say hi to_ Holiday Guide '17 | III. The Artist

Rae, a fine artist, is the opposite of a tortured painter. She grew up in an jovial and affluent African American family in New Orleans and has an sunny optimism not often associated with the stereotype of the struggling emerging artist.

A firm believer and practicer of Hoodoo (positive folk magic), she is interested in everything mystical and is deeply rooted to the local culture and traditions in her home city. Rae holds a firm belief that part of her positivity and well balanced life comes from power crystals and the practice of 'white magic'.

Although having more money than she knows what to do with at her disposal, she rarely splurges on anything that doesn't have a solid story behind it and or without knowing that she is supporting another great up and coming artist from her network. She is apart of the generation who is interested in investing in other creatives following their passions. Rae loves nothing more than to see her friends and fellow artists thrive and be able to pay the bills doing what they love. Not to mention her love of exquisite fine art and hand crafted pieces. 

She plans on hosting her annual 'Artists Secret Santa' this year and here are a few of the pieces of her friends she hopes to get her hands on.
