Rachel Tucker grew up in a rural area where she spent most of her time exploring the nearby forests. As a kid, she would build forts and hunt for treasure in the woods. Rachel has always held a deep connection with nature. She has enjoyed traveling to almost every National Park in North America which has only fueled her passion for creating art. After graduating with her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts & Post-Baccalaureate in Art Education from Eastern Michigan University, Rachel moved to Sedona to pursue her art career. She is the Assistant Art Director for Goldenstein Art at L’Auberge and also teaches painting classes in the summer months on the resort property. Her free time is spent painting, performing music with her husband, and hiking in the beautiful Southwest landscape.
Rachel tends to focus on connections to the natural world and the relation of self through the cycles of time. She will typically use more traditional art mediums such as charcoal, acrylics, watercolor, and pastel to create Impressionist and Representational works. These oftentimes represent the cycles of human life and thought processes.
“We are only on this Earth for a short time and my purpose in life is to help make the world a more beautiful place. As an artist, I enjoy making visually beautiful work, drawing attention to the use of heavy symbolism in my materials to convey messages or themes. Mother nature is the ultimate artist and I hold a deep respect for the limitless beauty she has created in this world. My current body of work has been inspired by my endless sketchbook pages into something more dimensional and textured. My work is in an expression of personal frowth and a response to what inspires me: an extension of my soul.” – Rachel Tucker
