The beginning of Rachel’s passion and love for art started with her grandfather’s enjoyment for woodworking. Rachel spent many summers vacationing with her grandparents, who of which had a huge impact in her life choice to become an artist. Rachel’s grandfather was a phenomenal wood worker and welder and helped develop her appreciation for working with her hands.
