Rebeca Raney is a Brooklyn-based artist whose work is filled with color, play and loads of whimsey. I can't get enough of her happy color and joyful strokes she incorporates into her work. Raney studied at the Rhode Island School of Design (BFA) and the School of Visual Arts (MFA). Her work has been featured in various publications including the New York Times and she recently collaborated on a collection with fashion retailer Madewell. Her work is available at Uprise Art.
"Her work is filled with whimsical flora, hybrid animals, and a cast of characters from an imaginary world the artist refers to as RANEYTOWN. Rebeca’s sculptures are inspired by her drawings and created as a means of bringing her drawings to life – the characters in her drawings realized in her sculptures with colorful fabric upholstery and tangible adornments such as her signature hand-embroidery." - Upriseart.com
