Walter Rane was born and raised in southern California. He received his BFA from Art Center College of Design in Los Angeles. There he found the traditional approach to drawing and painting that he desired. That discipline, combined with an emphasis on the human figure remains central to his art today. Following graduation from Art Center, Rane worked as a free-lance book and magazine illustrator in the New York area for twenty-one years.
In the late 1990’s Rane was invited by the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints to paint scriptural themes. This opportunity sparked an interest that he had since childhood, of creating religious paintings in a classical fashion. These subjects continue to be an important part of his work, along with still lifes, landscapes, cityscapes and scenes of contemporary life. No matter what the subject, he approaches his work with passion and with gratitude for the ability to express himself through the visual arts.
Walter Rane and his wife currently live in New York City. They have four sons, two daughters in law and three grandchildren.
