Here's a little info about our First Friday Artist of 2019 featuring Raeann Kruger:
Raeann started enjoying and creating art at an early age. She has been dabbling throughout her life from time to time, despite a limited educational background in the arts. She was lucky to have a wonderful and talented high school art teacher who inspired and gave her a bag tricks to send her on her way.
Even after getting knee surgery, Raeann spent a year in art school which helped her heal. There she met another fabulous teacher who also inspired her to learn the skills of oil painting. After a year of art school, her body was healed and she was ready to boogie back to the mountains!
Moving back to Alaska in 2007 after traveling snowboarding in various places, has been the biggest inspiration for her to pick up her brushes and pencils. Being a massage therapist has allowed her to continue the love she has for helping people and to live her creative, active lifestyle. She is grateful to share her work hoping to encourage people to get outside and appreciate nature. Painting and drawing Alaska’s beauty is a way she can express her love for this amazing place we live in.
Come support/meet Raeann and let her share her passion with you!
