Raina Goran is a contemporary, mixed media, artist, inspired by city and landscapes. She works in acrylic and collage, simplifying what she sees into patterns and vibrant coloured shapes, made from torn or cut sheets of hand painted paper. Raina often works straight from life, editing down until she has found the most important shapes and colour balance which create a new version but retains the essence and energy of the original place.
Her training as an Illustrator still influences her work and love of travel inspires the vibrant colour palette that appears in her paintings.
Raina exhibits regularly and in the past two years has exhibited with, The Society of Women Artists, The Royal Society of Painters in Watercolours and The New English Art Club at the Mall Galleries in London.
