    Rachel Anna Giddens
    Visual artist, photographer, filmmaker, traveller, actor. Rachel Giddens, artist name RANNA, works in a variety of creative fields in which she finds there is a demand. She has been doing visual arts and photography since a young age, briefly studying classical styles, before graduating a full time acting course with Film & Television International in Brisbane. Rachel then moved to Sydney and went on to complete a Foundation Diploma at Australian Film, Television and Radio School. After working in the film and television industry for a year, she broke away into the freelance lifestyle, gradually building a reputation for creative versatility so that each client brief is met. Rachel has been successfully working as a conceptual artist, film maker, photographer and artist for the past 2 years, constantly refining her business and aesthetics to move forward in her career.

    When asked to describe herself using two words: Chameleon and Passionate.

    "I want to inspire, to not stand in the way of my own light and to see everything. I'm very greedy"

    Rachel is currently working out of her studio in Sydney city, juggling her work and lifestyle, one coffee at a time.
    • Artist Statement
      • Going by the name of RANNA, I've been working in Sydney as a freelance visual artist for about a year and a half. I work mostly with acrylics on large scale projects with different types of materials, but also dabble in small sketches. I find I don't have a particular style, my work varies and never fits into a specific theme, similar to my own traits as a woman. I personally find consistency boring and unattainable for the modern woman, and artist, as it restricts creativity into something that is 'structured'. My artistic style constantly changes, which is why I love doing commissioned pieces, as I get to bring someone else's idea of art to life.

        Travel, the ocean and the people surrounding me are my influences both within my artwork and my life. My goal is to be content and happy within every day that I live, to feel everything as it happens and to embrace new experiences. As 2017 begins my artistic pursuits are evolving and moving into exciting new territory, which I look forward to tackling head on.
