JL Rayne is an illustrator and traditional artist currently located in San Antonio, TX. She is a self-taught artist and continues to hone her skills daily while enrolled in the Milan Art Institute’s Master Program. She is currently a Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force and feeds her creativity daily. After her time in Kadena Airbase, Okinawa, Japan, and Bagram Air Force Base, she rekindled her love of the arts and began drawing as a stress reliever from her daily military tasks. One day, she aspires to be a full-time artist after fulfilling her commitment to the military.

She specializes in exploring the female form and enjoys experimenting with new themes and challenges into her pieces. Her paintings can be described as abstract realism with colorful self-expression. JL expresses love, hope, and authenticity through her pieces.

She enjoys creating youtube videos that describe her process and inspiration for each piece. She enjoys teaching others tips and tricks to improving their art. Soon, she plans on creating “How-To” books for the basics of drawing and composition. When not working on major projects, she is usually indulging on hopeless romantic comedies reading poetry or enjoying the outdoors with her pomeranian, Biggie and spending quality time with her boyfriend, Nick.

JL loves to explore craft beers, swimming, cute japanese animal characters, colorful stationary and anything pink or teal.
