Artist Rachel Blanchette
Rachel holds a Bachelor of Education and diplomas in both design and business administration. At work she draws from all these sources daily. She enjoys all aspects of design and is in a unique position in that she influences clients with their choices of color and texture when they are choosing products for their homes and businesses. She enjoys being in a position to use her training to procure products in order to meet the needs of current and upcoming trends. She believes that there is no need to accept anything below that of exceptional selection and quality when it comes time for your projects. Rachel has been taking and teaching classes all of her life. In particular, she loves to attend classes where you take with you a tangible result; whether that be a quilt, a wool suit, a hat, an artisan bread, fresh pasta and now paintings! Her first foray into fine art resulted in a need to find out how to do representational art. Since the spring of 2017 her heretofore hidden talents have been surfacing due to the guidance of Lana Kanyo - who is an amazing artist and an excellent instructor. The experience at the Masters Art Academy has been enjoyable and rewarding, and Rachel feels that everyone can learn something new! She has been pleasantly surprised that these paintings have been developed and hopes that anyone who sees the work can appreciate them as well. She recommends that everyone should pursue their dreams. Tell someone your goals and they will help you achieve them!
