Intense coloured shapes, often made from torn sheets of hand painted paper
Raina Goran is a contemporary mixed media artist making work inspired by the city, landscape and the sea. Working in acrylic, pastel and collage, she records the essence of a place by editing and abstracting what she sees into patterns of intense coloured shapes, often made from torn sheets of hand painted paper.
Raina studied illustration at Wimbledon School of Art before working as a Creative Director in the Greeting card Industry. Her illustration training still informs her current Fine Art work, with further influences coming from artists such as Barbara Rae, Hockney and Matisse.
Raina exhibits regularly and sells through galleries and online websites. She has also exhibited at the Mall Galleries in London, with the NEAC, Society of Women Artists and The Royal Institute of Painters in Watercolours.
