Welcome to my site. My name is Coille Rain and I am an artist who studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. I also received training from a variety of teachers in different art programs and schools. Perhaps my best teacher was my mother who was a successful artist with a lot of influence in her community. Our bond fostered a deep love for creating and sharing art with others. I get most of my inspiration from nature and hope to convey the message that nature is alive and not just something pretty to view. I want people to learn something about themselves and the world when they view my art. I hope that my art takes people into another world or aspect of this world that feels happy and peaceful connected to the mystery of life and each other.
