For the past thirteen years I have held monthly classes at the Huntington Botanical Gardens in addition to the classes in my studio and numerous outside workshops including a workshop this year for the artists at Nickelodeon. I have been a teacher at the Expo: Art Show in California since its inception. These workshops have lead to my book, 'The Ch'i of the Brush' and are based on it. At my workshops, students leave with at least one completed painting each day. Overall, I have conducted classes for over 3,000 students. This year my artwork was chosen to be the Bamboo logo for the historic 2008 New York Philharmonic's trip to China and North Korea. Annually I have done 'The Year of" artwork for the San Francisco Symphony Chinese New Year Concert. Quoting a recent article ... "The work of artist Nan Rae reflects her power of creative concept. Asian in technique, her work is profoundly impressionistic. Her deft, rapid oriental brush strokes capture the viewer in a wondrous sweep of pure, free and energized freedom yet clearly contemporary, clean in form and candidly robust, often exhilarating. Art connoisseurs have often commented they feel as if they are entering the painting and becoming subjectively involved in it. Not surprisingly, this best selling artist's paintings and prints hang not only in the most prestigious homes in Southern California but also in private and corporate collections across the country, in Canada and Europe. Nan Rae brings to Chinese Brush Painting strong training and experience in Western Art and an early love of French Impressionists. Her paintings sing with the joyous themes and harmonics of both forms so effectively that the fusion of East and West is visible even to the eye of the casual art lover."
