About Rae Mahaffey

Raised in Colorado, I studied art at Western Washington University in Bellingham, Washington, the University of Copenhagen in Denmark and the University of Washington in Seattle. I have exhibited primarily on the West Coast in galleries and public institutions such as the Portland Art Museum and the Boise Art Museum.

For nearly 30 years I have sustained an active studio practice, and regularly exhibited work. I have completed public art projects in Colorado, Oregon, Texas, and Washington. Museums, universities, corporations and private collectors throughout the country have my work in their collections.
