Rakhee Jain Desai is a self-taught, multi-disciplinary artist with an advertising and brand planning background. She was born in Canada, raised in the USA and lived in Singapore for nine years. Now back in Texas with her husband and two young daughters, Rakhee’s advertising and market research background influence how she approaches painting as she enjoys studying and integrating social stories and cultural symbols throughout her art. Her Indian heritage and almost a decade spent living in Asia are also evident with her utilisation of vibrant colors, motifs and symbols.
Rakhee has worked in clay, armature sculpture, watercolor, oils and wax. Her experience in a variety of medium is apparent as her paintings display dimension, depth and fluidity. Her current body of work uses a multiple step process which includes layers of wax, ink, dyes, fabric, acrylics, oils and epoxy to arrive at her final destination.
