About Rachel

My love for art comes from the simple notion of being able to simply make things. Since a small child, I've always enjoyed using my hands whether it be to paint or draw or build things. I chose to study art for both my undergraduate degree and received a MS in Communication Design at Pratt Institute. Throughout my time in graduate school, I have also begun a small bespoke paper goods and fine art online boutique, Handmade Darling, which allows me to connect with people all over the country and even throughout the world.

My hope is to continue building upon my knowledge and lead to a career in teaching. I believe it is so important to excite others, especially children, about art and encourage their love of also making things whether it be a canvas or a bunch of scrap wood come to life as something new and beautiful. Most toys today come already put together with a bunch of batteries or rely on a screen for entertainment and I think we need to change that to allow imagination to flourish.

I have worked previously in a mentor program that focused on art as well as NYSSSA (NY State Summer School of the Arts) in the Visual Arts program working with talented high school students in an accelerated 4-week summer program. Everything from printmaking to sculpture to landscape drawing is offered and students create wonderful pieces of art.

I'm hoping to work with students who want to learn more about art and art history and I'm happy to try to accommodate your schedule. Whether you need help preparing for a course, working on a particular skill or technique, or help applying to art school, I've been there and I can help. I'm able to meet both at your home or at my private in-house studio.

I look forward to hearing from you!
