Rachel is a Portland Oregon based Artist. She graduated with a BFA in Painting from Pacific Northwest College of Art in 2007. Since then, she's been working consistently and mostly showing in small, local businesses around town. While her medium often changes, composition remains consistent and exploration tends to be within the realm of portraiture. Expressive mark making and nuanced color are two areas of focus and are very important to the artist. Eyes are another fascination.

"I am drawn to things that explore human experience and emotion. My work often includes a centrally place subject within a flat space. As a person who experiences a fair amount of anxiety and obsessive thinking, having a  somewhat simple composition allows me to relax and focus. It calms my mind. Active mark-making, a focus on color, and an exploration of medium are my main tools used to honor my subjects."
