“I am interested in gender, myths and folklore and how these cultural constructs affect the way people interact with nature. In this new body of work, I use my knowledge of forageable plants to create work about edible and medicinal herbs and fungi and their links to women’s struggles past and present.”

Rachel studied printmaking at the University of Kansas (BFA) and the University of Minnesota (MFA.) She teaches printmaking, painting and drawing as an instructor at area colleges and art centers.
