Raelyn Larson, a La Crosse Wisconsin native, has spent the last 20 years working on her art in the south of France developing a mix of ceramic, found objects and watercolor, all with humor and poetry.
Living abroad permits one to filter, digest and see life differently, recognizing global connotations. Recognize the past and play with it as a fun memory.
Rae was inspired by this theme as well as a plethora of objects with a story will make you laugh into a good mood and smile in tough times. Better off having a fairy on your team than not. Nylon, Rose and Flora will be at your service depending on your needs.
“I have developed a universe around three characters, each having their very own personalities: biker, florist, athlete, all inspired from my personal life, not that I am a biker, florist nor athlete but draw my energy, enthusiasm, creativity from developing these three personalities “.
