Soraya Hutchinson b.Toronto 1978, BA Art History 2001 (UBC), FAA (Italy) 2002- 2005, Ted Jacobs (France) 2006-2010 . Soraya's paintings explore human experience through multi figure compositions.

"Ratman" is a series of narrative paintings Soraya has been making since 2015. The eponymous Ratman is a modern hero trying to survive in the city. His hopes and fears are manifest in the dreamscapes of his writing. His general malaise is interrupted by a violent cascade of garbage entering his home. Ratman sometimes appears human, other times as a man with a rat's head.

Ratman: the book and a full list of Soraya's drawings paintings are available on
