rinARTT is almost made outside. This what she invisoned clouds in space looking like.
rinARTT is an outsider. An anomaly. Known to some as adult star Taryn Thomas, in another life she advocated for sex work legalization and decriminalization. Despite retiring from the industry in 2012, she continues to campaign against the social stigma attached to that profession. Today rinARTT has shifted her attention to the canvas, away from the silver screen.

Almost entirely self-taught, to the surprise of many, rinARTT is nevertheless voraciously — even irrepressibly — creative. She averages one to two paintings per day. Only recently has she begun to sell her artwork, but has met with immediate success. Yet rinARTT’s talent remains largely undiscovered.
