Hi, my name is Rachel. I'm an art student at Western Oregon University. I will be receiving my BA in Art, with a focus in Painting/Printmaking in Fall 2013.
Color captivates me. This is what I am most drawn to in any form of art. Above all else, it is what my eye notices first. I like bright, clean, crisp colors. I appreciate the simplicity of various shapes and colors, and how they can be molded into something far more intricate and complicated. My current interest is in painting fruit. The brilliant colors that can be found in fruit are exciting to me. There is something pure and honest about the color in fruit.
Quite simply, I am drawn to works of art that are visually appealing. I enjoy making paintings that people can look upon and experience joy.
