Artist of the Month: Rachel Austin
This month’s featured artist is the very talented Rachel Austin. Rachel Austin’s map paintings are created using maps and layers of transparent acrylic paint, ink and oil paint on wood panels. Rachel is inspired by crisp moments of beauty and tries to capture them in this series. Each one is uniquely named after a location on the map and mounted on handmade wood frames. Rachel Austin is a full time artist living in Portland, Oregon with her husband, Jon and three year old, Adelaide. When not painting, you can find Rachel stomping in puddles or tending to her garden.
