Raevyn Berg is a beacon in the dark, using bursts of soulful colour to invigorate the imagation into connecting with the spirit. Born Albertan and raised in a diverse multi-cultural city, she has experiences with all walks of life. However, adventure took her to living and working in a small town, where she has become part of the art community through guilds and friendships. She presently resides in Sylvan Lake. She got her start in pursuing professional art after being inspired by artists at the Red Deer art and craft show and then competing in an Art Battle. In September 2019, she pursued further education with Milan Art Institute and invested in her dreams, which spearheaded her career.
Raevyn has a belief in a utopian experience and that mankind is searching for enlightment. She uses her art in that journey to understand the quest for a deeper connection that people all around her are yearning for. Her art is derived from her love of this dream and is emotionally expressed with bright, bold, and exaggerted use of highly pigmented colour. She is able to unearth the soul of her subjects with her unique mark making and the fearless combination of pastels, inks, spray paint, acrylic and oil. Her intuitive style, also inspired by the Fauvism art movement, expresses her imaginary power and visionary grace, to visually uplift any dark space. She was quoted when asked about her artwork: “Colour is a divine gift from God. We're not limited to what we see. I like to think I capture the colourful emotions of our spirits as well.”
The sun is always shining in Raevyn’s studio, warmed by the awareness of the Holy Spirit guiding her. She shares her passion with a Missional Community, and finds encouragement in sharing what she does with those who have a curiosity in painting. When not painting, Raevyn likes to write, and when not writing she loves to sit by water under the sun, or relax with her two fur babies while watching historical documentaries. She works toward collaborating with fellow artists from around the world, starting first by sharing ideas with local artists and establishing her presence within her community, such as applying for local art galleries. She also has a goal to travel after COVID-19 restrictions lift, to expand her experiences and immerse herself in various cultures, to live a life fulfilled and free.
