Thanks for visiting!
This is where I tell you a little bit about myself…
My name is Raylene (she/her) and I am a queer, multi-disciplinary artist based in Toronto, Canada.
Since graduating from the Dramatic Arts program at Brock University in 2016, up until very recently, my career had been focused on working as a producer and manager for an immersive theatre company.
Since early 2020, I've begun to follow more of my creative instincts and have started a painting business, dwelling by ray, have been auditioning more and creating comedy sketches, and most recently have started training to become a Birth Worker.
Through the many ups and downs of this past year, I've become a little more comfortable with being uncomfortable. My intention has come into a clearer focus. That is, to live and create in a way that reminds others of the simplicity of human connection and the complexities of our existence. To eradicate judgment, fear of change, acceptance of diversity, and to lift up the voices of those who have been silenced. I am still learning, growing, and changing as an artist and most importantly, as a human being.
My multi-disciplinary background facilitates the growing vision for my practice where I am creating a sustainable and balanced career through art. I hope to share all that I do with you and I really hope you enjoy it.
