Zoë Rayne was born on December 3, 1992 in Sydney, Australia. She grew up with a deep love of nature and art, inspired by a childhood rich with travel, and surrounded by art from her mother and grandmother who were both artists.
She began her artistic education in 2012 studying visual art at TAFE where she was introduced to oil paints for the first time and ignited her love for the medium. She then moved on to study a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Painting from 2013-15 at the National Art School in Sydney, where she created her first comprehensive body of work, a series of 6 oil paintings depicting her visions and dreams of the divine feminine in nature and the archetype of the wounded healer; a theme that she is still exploring.
Through her studies and personal pursuits Zoë has explored a variety of different mediums, including life drawing, photography, ceramics and sculpture, printmaking, and posing as a life model for other artists and photographers. Although many became passions, Zoë has devoted herself to oil painting.
After finishing her degree, Zoë has been focusing on her personal art practice, painting in her home studio, and exhibiting at transformational festivals around the world, such as Rainbow Serpent Festival (Aus), Earth Frequency Festival (Aus), and Sonic Bloom Festival (USA). Zoë aspires to follow a shamanic path of healing through nature, and to bring this into the world through her art.
