Limited Seasonal Steeples.


From Illustrative art and custom paintings, my creative style is influenced by seasons of life and seasons of change. Welcome to Candace Rae Creative where the love for art, teaching and design comes to life!

As Seasons change, so does my palette.

Just outside my kitchen window, lies the most diverse hills you’ve ever seen. My husband and I often wish that the barb wire wasn’t there holding us back from exploring every inch of their vast beauty. Twice a year we get to experience a palette change on these rolling hills. Once being the most luscious and vibrant green hues speckled with a pops of yellow and orange with our native flowers. And then as the sun’s heat radiates upon the green fields, they slowly become accented with gold before they’ve turned dormant. Oddly, I love the change. I’m never bored in gazing and wondering. As seasons do, they show growth and life.

So in this season, I’ve decided to paint loud and vibrant using their character as my inspiration!

I am an abstract impressionistic painter painting on canvas and reclaimed wood.

Laying down Pixels for Paints has been one of the most Divinely inspired moments I’ve had as a Mother in a long time. I wouldn’t say my brain stopped working, but it did! Foggy minded mornings drifted to foggy minded evenings leaving me nearly in tears over coding and SEO issues. And that’s how this collection happened. With baby by my side I picked up my old studio paint brushes and began painting. As the fog lifted, joy became more evident and my life’s purpose became about my passion.

A Biola Graduate with BS in Art, Candace Rae has incorporated the learned skill with the constant renewing of character throughout her practice. From international lifestyle photography to teaching even the youngest how to paint, it’s the spread of Art that she’s so eager to share.
