I have been splashing paint around for a long time. About 15 years ago I decided to apply myself to watercolors so I painted one a month. After the first year I decided to paint at least two a month. I found it more difficult but I persevered and felt more rewarded with the results, I only threw out a few. Now I feel anxious if I don't paint at least once a week. I paint what I see or at least an impression. I seldom paint from photos and I usually finish on site unless ants or the elements chase me away. I do paint commissions. I love to paint the coast or wherever I happen to be.

Rachel got her start in jewelry design because of the San Diego Repertory Theatre. When she started Sound Op-ing shows at night, she needed something to fill her time during the day. A bead collection started, and next thing she knew, she had more pieces of jewelry than she could wear. Over the years, the focus of her interest has changed: " I now use more semi-precious stones, Swarovski crystals and Sterling Silver than when I first started. I'm also quite fascinated with bead-weaving, so you see that influence in designs. Different things grab my interest, so I have quite a variety of styles."
