About the Artist
Above "All There in Nature" by Raelene Hall
Raelene Hall was born in Victoria in 1969, but has resided on the Sunshine Coast since 1976.
Influenced mainly by her immediate environment, she has also traveled extensively throughout Australia and around the world.
Raelene is self-taught and has become known predominantly for her watercolour paintings of local beaches and the beautiful Hinterland region.She enjoys portraying the energetic summer holiday beach crowds, because the beach has always been her backyard and therefore the ground for study engaging her curiosity about the antics of beach-goers and beach life.These are especially well depicted in her Sumi-e works.
Traveling to Japan on many occasions now for tuition in the art of "Sumi-e” under master teachers Shoka Ota, Chiaki Kato and Sei Amori, Raelene has certainly mastered the art of the black ink on rice paper.It has also provided a great understanding of the Eastern Philosophies on watercolour painting.She has used this ability to draw elegantly simple scenes of people on the beach in black on white to great effect.
She has been invited to many group exhibitions and has had her work acquired into numerous private collections across Australia and in the U.K. and in the U.S.A.
