ABOUT WALTER RAEMISCH
Contemporary Artist & Photographer
"I am an artist, a mixed media visual artist, enthusiast of all things typographic and a contemporary fine art photographer. Perhaps being an artist should cover all those bases but sometimes it takes a different medium or a mix of them to satisfy a creative challenge or personal interpretation. These trying times have made the arts our saviour, a place to escape and express our fears and celebrate our joys. We are all artists.
I studied Advertising Art and majored in Design in college. While working as a freelance illustrator and managing my own business, (Raemisch Designs, later Raemisch Stewart & Associates), and working as a layout technician at the local newspaper, I started to teach Art and Calligraphy classes at night school. I loved giving back and sharing my creative strategies so much I decided to get my teaching diploma from the University of Western Ontario - Althouse College.
After landing a job in Toronto at an auditioned Arts School teaching high school students Graphic Design and Video Production, I eventually became the Department Head and stayed at that high school for over 20 years. I still develop curriculum and teach but I have also had a resurgence in my own artistic pursuits that have spanned commercial to fine art for the last three decades.
Have a look through my website and follow me on Instagram (everydayrae). Feel free to drop me a message or ask a question if any of my creations appeal to you. Fine Art Prints and files are available for purchase."
