Growing up in the Colorado countryside, Rachel Znerold knew early on that she was different—she saw dazzling beauty in decomposing logs and scrawled wild designs on her sneakers. Now, as a painter, one-of-a-kind eco-fashion designer, performance artist and writer, Rachel makes her life out of making art. With a degree in Fine Art and Advertising from The University of Colorado at Boulder, she became a resident artist at Rembrandt Yard and taught painting, fashion design, and performance throughout Boulder. After traveling to New Zealand and Mexico to complete commissioned mural projects, Rachel up and moved to San Francisco on a whim. Now a member of the Mission District’s vibrant art scene, Rachel’s work has shown at Wonderland Gallery, 111 Minna, Secession Art & Design, Femina Potens, and Market Street Gallery. She has performed in San Francisco at the Rickshaw Stop, Dance Mission Theatre, The Box Factory and at Yerba Buena Night Out. Rachel is passionate about using art to build strong community and a culture of social activism.
Rachel’s work will be featured at the Rare Bird on Thursday, April 19 2012.
