Brief Biography

She is intensely interested in how what we see and experience can affect our subconscious and guide us to certain thoughts, emotions and actions. Rachel works in a range of media including drawing, printmaking, photography and sculpture. She sees a switch of media as a "translation" of the idea she is working on, allowing her to study the idea and expand it. Her prints are in the permanent collection at Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Target Corporation and the University of Wisconsin Union. She has taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, City College of San Francisco, the Milwaukee Institute of Art + Design and Edgewood College.
