About Rachel

Rachel received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Montserrat College of Art in Beverly, Massachusetts. Although her focus was on sculpture and printmaking, secretly, she always wanted to be a painter.

After graduating, Rachel moved to New York City and began a long career in marketing. In 2013, she left her first career and has since focused on developing her artwork and participating in group exhibitions.

Rachel and her husband spent a couple recent years living in Europe and now reside in Rhode Island where she finds inspiration in beautiful New England and in the memory of her time abroad.
