Rachel is a contemporary fiber and folk artist who comes from a long line of family who sew, starting with her great-grandmother. She has been doing wearable art since 1973. Eclectic fabric mixes, vibrant designs and color and a keen sense of humor characterize Rachel’s work. While her garments and quilts can be whimsical, political or a personal statement, they always reflect her love of traditional quilt making. Rachel’s lecture shows these exciting and colorful garments in a contemporary manner. Rachel has done many one woman shows around the country and has been featured in various gallery shows.
