Art lover. Sometimes-designer. Made in Texas.

Rachel graduated cum laude from Vassar College (2010) with degrees in Art History and Russian Studies and is a U.S. Presidential Scholar in the Arts (2006). She is currently an MA candidate in Art Business at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London.

A semester abroad in St. Petersburg developed Rachel’s interest in Russian art and culture, eventually leading her to write her undergraduate thesis on early Soviet mass media. In college Rachel gained insight into the “art world” with internships at The Frick Collection and Christie’s. A former artist, she also consulted on marketing campaigns and taught high school students before deciding to devote herself to a career in art.

You can catch her curating alternative representations of cats and working on other web-based projects. She has designed posters and promotions for The Flaming Lips, Grizzly Bear, Beach House, Deerhunter, and others.
