Rani Garner is a dedicated, career artist living in rural Georgia. Originally from Phoenix, Arizona, Garner speculates that growing up in a desert environment made her appreciate the trees which now fill her canvasses.
She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Arizona State University and has been painting professionally since 1989. The focus of her artwork is on capturing the essence of light. The paintings, which often feature a dazzling glow of sunlight glimpsed through trees, are prized by collectors who are reminded of their own meaningful moments of communion with light and what it symbolizes to them.
Another artist has said of her work, “It is as if she has taken the best parts of a day and condensed them down into one single, perfect moment.”
