Rachel Parker is a self taught artist who works mainly in watercolors. Her paintings feature cats, horses, dogs, wildlife, farm animals, landscapes, abstracts and still life. As the daughter of an artist, she was raised going to art lessons and watching her mother paint. She has been drawing since she was old enough to hold a pencil, and began painting in 2000.
Her motivation for creating is to capture what may otherwise go unnoticed, to reveal the beauty in simple moments and objects. Making an image come alive on paper or canvas is her inspiration. Rachel has sold her work nationally and internationally through www.rachelsstudio.com. She paints at night and during weekends and works full time as a school social worker.
