Statement

Rachel has been chasing creativity and making art since she was a kid growing up in Wisconsin. After earning a bachelor's degree in art education from the University of Florida and teaching at public schools for a while, she moved to California to work as a decorator at Disneyland and make art in her spare time.

Rachel loves ideas, the absurd and roadside americana. The figure has always been central to her work, whether created from life, photos or directly from imagination. Rachel's work draws upon the whimsical and the superlative alike. Color, line and emotion are key elements of her work.
