Professional artist and therapist Raelean Hall is well recognised for her beautiful paintings depicting the Sunshine Coast. Her many different styles, mediums and subject matter show her diversity, resourcefulness and sensitivity in the creative process.

Holding a BA in Psychology (2002), Master and Doctorate in Art Therapy (2006; 2013), Raelean’s extensive studies in creativity and therapeutic portraiture have earned her respect and recognition from Professor Shaun McNiff, Lester University in Boston, USA, being awarded the highest distinction for her research and contribution to the field of art therapy. Her interests include working interactively with clients with disabilities and disorders, engaging body-mind connections through creative therapeutic methods. Having a keen interest in neuroscience for creative rewiring and rehabilitation, merging art with science is Raelean’s passion and calling.
