Hi. I’m Rachel. An artist, feminist practitioner, and crone of compassion and wisdom living in Madison, Wisconsin, USA. I earned a bachelor of arts in studio painting and art education. I also practice yoga, gardening, and reading of all types, especially fine poems.


About my paintings: Working on paper or canvas, and with a variety of media including acrylic paint, grease pencil, charcoal, pencil, pen, watercolor, and oil pastel, I create abstract paintings and drawings. If you’re interested in purchasing my original drawings and paintings, please contact me. I donate 5% of all original drawing and painting sales to the Nature Conservancy. You can purchase prints of many of my works at my Redbubble shop.


About my ceramics: My ceramic work mainly consists of functional pots made on the wheel, with a few forms handbuilt from slabs or coils. I use a variety of clays, including stoneware, a porcelain/stoneware mix, porcelain, and red stoneware. My work is high-fired, and decorated with a variety of colored slips, underglazes, and both matte and gloss glazes. My original ceramics are available for sale at my Etsy shop. I donate 5% of my ceramic sales to the Madison School & Community Recreation pottery program.

  1. Rachel! Thanks so much for visiting my site and choosing to follow along! Your work is stunning. Are you thinking about coming back for the 40th reunion? I don’t usually do that stuff, but I’d love to see you and talk about art. 🙂


    1. Hi Sandy! I’ve just scratched the surface of your blog. You are a prolific writer and artist! My other first impression? I LOVE your music selection;) No, I don’t ‘think’ I’ve ever gone to a reunion, and don’t plan on attending this one. But yes, let’s talk about art.
