Rachel Ann Austin
When I first saw Rachel's work I was immediately drawn to her colors and simple, bold compositions. Rachel resides in Portland and began her artmaking career building tables. She then went on to study woodworking at the Oregon College of Arts and Crafts. Over time Rachel decided to take her numerous sketchbook drawings and turn them into paintings. Since then she's had many solo and two person exhibitions in Oregon and around the country. Her work at YES Gallery + Studio represents two styles - oil paintings of abstracted lanterns and mixed media paintings (for which she uses a map as the ground).
