Featured Handmade Artist- RaeoLight

Hi! Welcome to another Featured Handmade Artist! This week I'm featuring the lovely lovely photography from RaeoLight. Her images are stunning and she strives to show the beauty in ordinary, everyday objects and scenes. I'm really loving the Cafe Delight Print (featured below) and the Pretty in Pink Take 2 print! Here are a few examples of her gorgeous photography:


Hi Rachel!! Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?

My Name is Rachel and I'm from Joplin, MO a town whose only claim to fame is being mentioned in the song Route 66.

How long have you been creating?

I've been playing and photographing seriously for about five years now.

What is the inspiration for making your pieces?

I like finding and capturing things most people pass by on a daily basis. It's my goal to find beauty in everything and ensure that it is a pure as possible.

What would be your dream job?

I would love to sing in a Disney film, but besides that I would have a blast taking photos all day. I think that would bring me tons of joy.

Please describe your creative process a little bit for us.

Well when I shoot I kinda do so like a machine gun, while most photographers work patiently to get their shot I just keep clicking and am always pleasantly surprised about how the turn out. I'm a spur of the moment kind of girl and thus so are my photos.

What item would you be secretly heartbroken about if it sold?

Well none of them really. I would love to see all my stuff up in someones house so that it can become a home.

How do you promote your work?

Well I recently started a blog raeolight.wordpress.com and have a facebook page facebook.com/raeoflightphotos. Then I hang out in the forums.... a lot.

What are a few of your favorite books, movies, musicians, and websites that you'd like to share?

I love Jane Austen and have always wanted to go to Europe and see all of those romantic places. I'm very ecceltic in my music. I love Norah Jones and Pink. really mesh well huh? I guess you can also see that in my photos as I have all sorts of stuff to choose from.

If you could have one super power, what would it be and why?

Hmmm that's a tough one. I guess maybe to read other peoples thoughts. That why I could know how to help them if they were in trouble.

What would you do if you knew you could not fail?

I would open a restaurant and use it as a desert/ art bar. I think it would be fab to have those things combined. Nothing ends the day right like looking at some great art while sipping some great coffee and eating creamy cakes
