WASCO -Watercolor Artists of Sonoma County

 

Rae Ann Williams

I have lived in Santa Rosa, for most of my life, moving here at an early age from Vallejo. I have always loved art and have been painting since 1996, starting with oils and acrylics, but quickly changing to watercolor as my medium of choice. From the time I started painting, I have taken classes and gone to workshops locally, and continue to paint in a private workshop on a weekly basis. I have a very supportive husband, Rich, who I have been married to for thirty seven years, and we have three children Jennifer, Scott and Dave. Our oldest daughter, Jennifer and her husband Dean Ketelsen, have a 3 year old son, Brenden, a one year old daughter, Kelsey and Dean’s thirteen year old daughter, Courtney. Scott and his wife Jessica have a four year old son, Sean, and a two year old daughter, Rachel. Dave, our youngest son, is attending Santa Rosa Junior College.

Watercolor painting is my passion, and I find that I totally relax and become stress free when I paint. I am constantly trying new methods, and techniques to help me become a better artist. Being able to share my work with others in shows and galleries is wonderful, and when I sell my work I have a real feeling of accomplishment. I love what I do, and I hope that is reflected in my work.

I have been fortunate enough to take classes and be part of workshops with excellent instructors: Kathryn Cerasoli, Judy Greenberg, Terry Madden, Birgit O’Conner, Robert Dvorak, Barbara Jeffery Clay, Betsy Dillard Stroud, Lian Quan Zhen, Christopher Schenk and Tony Couch.

Some exhibitions that I have had include: Finley Center, Copperfield Café, Gallery One in Petaluma, Steele Lane Recreation and Parks Center, Aqua Areas in Coddingtown, Chicago Title in Windsor and Santa Rosa, Empire Optical/Empire Eye Doctors, Gualala Art Show, Showcase Artists at Plaza Art in Healdsburg, Narsi’s in Coddingtown, and Montgomery Village Art Show. I have also been part of the Sonoma County Fair, Harvest Fair and Duncans Mills Festival winning many first, second and third place ribbons as well as a Best of Show.

I am a member of WASCO, CWA and NWS, and I enjoy the creative support that I receive from those affiliations.
