Nesting: Artist Profile – Lorelle Rau

Lorelle Rau is a contemporary collage artist, who uses cut paper and appropriated imagery to investigate concepts ranging from nature and place to personal experiences. Lorelle’s participation in the Boise Open Studios event brought her to the attention of NestingCards®.

As Lorelle shares: “My harmonious compositions piece together snippets of found paper and captured imagery to create graceful linear vistas and abstract scenes that coordinate color, texture, and shape with balanced intention. The process is guided by an intuitive context, where the elements come together by adding and extracting forms and expertly bringing line and detail into play within the landscape.” 

The Mountain Miniatures set of seven cards capture Lorelle’s talent in mailable form that recipients can display or frame for ongoing delight. Enjoy the rich Mountain Miniatures’ colors as works of art in your own home: keep the cards and hang or frame them. Gift the cards – unused to someone else. Create a gift and send the cards yourself. The ideas are endless. 

​Lorelle earned her MA in Arts Administration from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2015 and received a BS in Art Management and BA in Studio Art from Appalachian State University.

Lorelle was the recipient of an Alexa Rose Foundation Grant in 2019 and has work in a number of private and public collections throughout the United States. She currently works as a gallerist at Capitol Contemporary Gallery and an art consultant where she assists individuals and businesses procure artwork.

As an art consultant, Lorelle specializes in the selection, placement, acquisition, and installation of original paintings, sculpture, photography, and prints in a wide range of styles. “Whether you are selecting a piece of art to hang above your sofa, or choosing a comprehensive art plan for your home or office, we will work within your budget to help you achieve your goals.”

When she is not fully immersed in the visual arts, she enjoys hiking in the Boise Foothills and Idaho backcountry with her husband and dog, Tanner.
