Complex layering of various media with a focus on nature or the human form draws viewers into Raina’s meaningful, evocative works. Raina Gentry was born and raised in Southern California and received a B.A. in Environmental Pilosophy from Prescott College. Always interested in art, in 2000 Raina became inspired to quit her job, enroll in the University of Arizona’s art program, and move to Tucson. She received her degree in art from UA in 2002 and incorporates her studies in printmaking, life drawing, collage and painting as well as her background in environmental philosophy.
Each piece of Raina’s art evolves naturally and intuitively with little structure or expectation about the final outcome. Raina believes this organic approach to art enables her to tap into and express universal themes that resonate with many people
