Rachel Vann - Artist
"If you find art twinkling in your eyes and whispering in your ears, I hope you also find the strength to truly sit with it and welcome it into your life." -Rachel
Rachel Vann is an artist attending art school at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, CO. She expects a BFA in Drawing and a Philosophy Minor in May 2021. Rachel grew up in Boulder, CO, thoroughly involved with her community as an artist, student, lifeguard, horseback rider, rock climber, and neighbor. She is an avid reader (22 books this year!) and garners inspiration for art from the stories she reads, the natural world that she explores, and her introspective journeying that she is continuously dedicated to. Her work explores the many facets of connection that she's had to develop to uniquely and adequately approach each new environment. She views art as a Process that begins first with the artist exploring their world, then translating their experiences into a work of art, and finally allowing
that completed piece to communicate with a viewer and, hopefully, enable the viewer to then explore their own world with a different lens. Rachel's art carries a narrative feeling and expresses her interest in line quality, colors that emote, and story telling. Rachel hopes to utilize the lessons learned from her intuitive art making process, Reiki 2 certification, training in Aikido, interest in holistic and herbal remedies, and her energetic work with horses to benefit her community as a healer.
Rachel has several works for sale and is available for custom art including pet and family portraits. Get in touch with her to inquire about pricing, chat about art, or ask for the story behind a specific piece.
