Biography Van Rainy Hecht-Nielsen
The following biography is from the artist:
Born in Colorado twenty-six years ago, I have traveled frequently and currently reside in Austin, Texas. My career in art began two years ago, and I have since worked in bronze, marble, oils, pastels, and charcoal. Having never been to a formal art school, my means of education has been rather simple.
I have had three main categories of learning: First, intense observation, even copying, of Old Masters (from books and one trip to Europe); secondly, self-teaching through experimentation and daily practice; lastly, informal study of oils and pastels with local artist Miles Mathis.
