Rachel’s work is based on her own lived experience and family history, where she explores tradition and identity. She has a B.A. in Art with a concentration in Printmaking and Entrepreneurial Studies, and a B.F.A. in Studio Art with a minor in Book Arts, both from the University of Southern Maine. She is currently working on an M.F.A. at the University of Maine. In 2008, she was an intern at the Engine House Press, on the island of Vinalhaven, Maine, and in 2009 she spent a year printing with the Peregrine Press in Portland, thanks to the Kate Mahoney Memorial Scholarship. She is currently a member of Running with Scissors Studios in Portland, Maine, and teaches printmaking and bookmaking workshops.
When not in the studio, she enjoys traveling, cooking, camping, hiking, and sewing.
