Silke Raetze

Silke Raetze studied at the National Art School, Sydney and completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 2005. Formally trained in painting, her practice now encompasses a variety of different mediums and techniques, including text-based cross-stitch embroidery for which she is well-known. Silke continues to explore the undercurrents of love and lust and in so doing leads us on a visual journey through her world of dreams, hopes and desires. Represented by Michael Reid since 2007, she continues to be an active participant in curated exhibitions and art awards throughout Australia.  Silke is represented in the collection of the Swan Hill Regional Art Gallery.
