"Ingmar Bergman would love this work, particularly after a few beers with Charles Bukowski.
I enjoyed it tremendously and savored every moment of uncomfortable recognition."

— Richard Goldstone, Writer / Producer

“I aspire to deconstruct the American dream and the feminine principle of the happily-ever after. As was once said about Ingmar Bergman, I am interested not in saving souls, but in baring them. My poetry is described as sharp, sardonic and unflinching with a rock 'n' roll attitude. For my photography, I aspire to capture the alchemy of light and an extraordinary moment in time. For my artwork, I am fascinated by textures, materials and bold graphics. I attempt to bring to life that which is not easily seen."

— Rain Heron

Rain Heron is an Artist, Poet and Photographer, or as she likes to put it, she’s an APP.

In 2018, Rain performed ‘Fragile Selves’ on possibly the hottest day of the year in 2018 with fellow poet, David Batten, author of several books. The performance was layered with a rich, haunting classical music set and an air conditioner. The show was very well received by the international, multi-lingual audience.

In 2016-18, Rain performed in a two-woman live poetry show, “2 Voices ” with poet Nav Vilain and “2 Voices + 1 Sound” with  Nav and DJ Tof Matgorski. “2 Voices + 1 Sound” toured France and at Brighton Fringe Festival in the UK. Rain and Nav punded out there original poems in tandem, accompanied eclectic music by French DJ “Tof” Matgorski. “2 Voices + 1 Sound” received a favorable review in Broadway Baby.

Rain Heron is a poet of human desire whose writings are full of translucent humanity as she explores those nagging questions about life and death. The BBC Reporter described Rain Heron’s poetry as “A poetic smorgasbord of imagination, humour and rock ‘n’ roll, fusing so many influences from Larkin to Heaney, creating something amazingly fresh and Zeitgeist”. 

Rain’s sculpture, furniture, mixed media artwork and photography have been exhibited throughout the US and France. Her artwork has been featured in LA County Arts Open House, Home Cable Network TV and Ovation, the Arts Network. Rain’s poetry performances are featured on Broadway Baby, Juice Brighton and France 3 TV.

In 2013, Rain co-authored a poetry collection entitled “Fragments — Sharp and Unexpected Pieces” written with author and sage, Hamilton Hill (available on Amazon or Lulu).

Rain lives in Poitiers, France where she follows her imagination wherever it may lead her. She is currently working on a cookbook, a book of short stories and poems, and a more daring subversive poetry collection.
