About the Artist

Rachel Rader (Seattle) received a BA in fine arts from Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond in 2006. Since graduating, she moved to Seattle where she is involved in the art community through Pratt Fine Arts Center and Pilchuck Glass School.

Rachel makes work that is performance-based. She strives to saturate the audience with vibrant colored forms that entice and entangle the audience in another world. Of late, Rachel has been working with fantastical underwater themes. Enamored with childhood dreams, she makes objects that collectively portray fantasies that come to life.
