Lorelle Rau is a professional artist, who uses cut paper and appropriated imagery to investigate concepts of nature and place. Rau earned an 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. She spent the last five years working for a corporate art consulting firm in Virginia, where she managed several healthcare and corporate projects. While her formal education is in Arts Administration, she has exhibited her own artwork nationally since 2010. When she is not fully immersed in the visual arts, Rau enjoys hiking in the Boise foothills and Idaho backcountry. Both activities inform her career as a professional artist and interest in healthcare art.
