about the artist

I'm Rae, a Melbourne born artist by nature and an interior decorator by trade - and passionate about incorporating my love for travel, colour, sunshine and the beach into vibrant and evocative art and interiors!

  • I'm currently staying in Hiriketiya in Sri Lanka - exploring lots of beaches, making art, scuba diving and avoiding big spiders at all costs!

  • Studio Solae originally started as Art Bohéme - an art space borne from my time living in Spain and creating art to evoke warmth and travel nostalgia.

  • Each painting is designed to evoke your own memories of travelling, to bring back the sentiment of a beautiful moment in the past - vibrant emotions, sensations of warm breezes, delicious flavours and the bold colours of sunsets and summer!

  • I studied Interior Decoration at Design School, bringing my passion for using colour and texture to uplift your mood and create feelings of relaxation to interior spaces as well as art. Tropicasa is my own interior design style and matches perfectly with my art!

  • My paintings and interior decoration are specifically designed for fellow travel lovers to bring vitality and joy to your home lives - we might not be able to be travelling all the time but we can live in the energy of it!

  • I hope you get as much joy from my artwork as I do, and I hope my paintings bring you happy memories, energy and inspiration. It is a delight and privilege for me to contribute to making your life more beautiful and colourful!
