Mixed-media artist Rae Missigman identifies herself as a “mark-maker.” Ever in the forefront of her art, organic shapes and graphic marks are what give her work a sense of authenticity. With an adventurous, anything-goes attitude to expressing herself, she is just as likely to use a celery stem, a sewing machine or a cardboard tube as she is a brush, a palette knife or her own hands.
In Paint, Play, Explore, Missigman helps you discover those marks that define you as an artist, and weave them into your art in new and interesting ways. Through page after page of creative exploration, you’ll become a collector of tools—traditional and unconventional mark-makers that will become an extension of your unique voice.
You’ll become a tinkerer as you recycle and repurpose, striving to turn something ordinary into something extraordinary. You’ll become an explorer as you draw with your non-dominant hand, create “blindly” using resists, stamp with your own handcrafted organic ink, and follow other creative prompts to widen and shape your artistic world.
Whether you’re just starting your creative adventure or you’re looking to break through to the next level, Paint, Play, Explore will set you in motion. Setting the tone with her upbeat vibe and joyful use of color, Missigman pushes you to find your own beautiful artistic “fingerprint” to create work that is interesting, full of life and distinctly yours; and above all, to embrace the journey.
You’re going to need a bigger creative toolbox …
“The shapes you choose to etch in your work, free flowing and heartfelt, are a part of what makes the art your own. Tools in hand, your marks will find you and you will begin to recognize yourself in your creations.”
Rae Missigman, mixed-media artist, author and instructor loves to share her design passions in the classroom, on the printed page and on her website. No ordinary object is safe in her hands but destined to become something extraordinarily beautiful and wildly imaginative.
Rae’s mantra is no piece is complete without layers of her signature marks, dots and dashes. Her large following of art lovers clamor for her books, products and instructional videos to bring repetitive marks into their own art journals.
Rae’s color palette is bold and vivid despite her professed love for the color white. She finds white soothing in her personal life and the perfect backdrop for the splashes of color dominating her pieces.
Rae works from her often photographed home studio in central Florida where she lives with her supportive husband and five children and now passes her love of color and design on to her grandchildren. You can visit her website at raemissigman.com.
