Born and raised in Bozeman, Montana, Rachel is at home in wilderness. She can be found skiing, painting, mountain biking, climbing, and traveling to wild places. Rachel also loves nannying, teaching art lessons, and volunteering with at-risk adolescents. For the last five years, she has been pursuing her BFA in painting and is graduating this December. Rachel's work expresses the experience of being in wild places, and this show highlights recognizable ranges and peaks in the mountains around Bozeman. Her landscapes surround us in undulating energy, dazzling light, or else convey quiet solitude. The joyful nature of these paintings, with their vibrant colors and stylized forms, are reminiscent of the feeling of moving through a dynamic and billowing world of light and shadow.
