about the piece.
Rachel describes the piece, "As I was new to this form of ink and wash painting, I searched for information and tips for technique. What I discovered, besides the years of practice necessary to fully become one with this style, is a medium centered around the soul of the object being painted. It's not just recreating the image, but recounting the unseen vibrancy or temperament of the object. Useless details are left out, and the essence of it remains. So this is my story...my soul."

about the artist.
Rachel lives in Kansas with her husband of four years and a gray cat. They lost their first child, Lyra, at 30 weeks due to placental abruption on December 18, 2009. Rachel maintains a blog called Curls O Fred.
