About Rachael


I was quite literally HYPNOTIZED by COLORED LIGHTS in the SAO PAULO SUBWAY at ONE YEAR OLD.

As I sat in my stroller inclined at the perfect angle to enjoy the show, my mother had to snap me back out of the trance of the dancing overhead lights. I’m pretty sure I’ve been hypnotized by color and beauty a million times since. 

I was RAISED with LOVE.

My gorgeous Brazilian Mother taught me how to live from my heart fully and with passion. My handsome Irish American Father taught me how to stay grounded, respect and revere our land, recycle, conserve and take care of our animals.

Still, I remember looking out into the world past the safety of my warm childhood home and seeing as much pain as I did beauty. Kind of heavy for a playful, brown eyed tom-boy, I know! But, social and spiritual consciousness have never been things I could easily overlook. And they still aren’t.

Art's my FIRST LANGUAGE. I use it to EXPRESS EMOTIONS I can't put to WORDS.

From childhood, I made art because capturing moments came much easier to me than acing math exams. Communicating with color was a breeze compared to giving a speech. I made art because I was encouraged by my peers. It wasn’t just my happy place or safe place -- it was my place of strength. 

As an adult, I’ve been told by others that my art moves them as well.

Art has presented a yellow brick road that I follow without hesitation always…you wanna know why? 

Because it’s honest and bold. Because it’s softly still and yet can vibrate violently. Because it has muscles to flex and mountains to move as it meditates. Because, it’s powerful. Much like you and me. And it’s why we’re here today.

PAINTINGS WITH PURPOSE is where ART and EARTH COLLIDE.

Paintings With Purpose


Simply, when you invest in my work, not only will you collect a beautiful piece of art that you love,  you'll also be supporting one of three transformational causes that are changing the world. The choice of which cause is yours. 

Why is this important?

Because I truly believe that together, we can and we will change the world. 

To do that we need, now more than ever, awareness and action. 

Our planet and resources are in desperate need of some well deserved R&R. With over 7.28 billion people on Earth, some of our neighbors need a little help from their friends. And, without a voice of their own, all of Earth’s cute creatures (and even the not so cute ones) need our voice.

Our choices and voices have ripple effects.

Through them we have the power to transform our world every day. So let’s!

Disclaimer: I have no affiliation with these selected Charities. But, I believe in the work they’re doing and the integrity in which they advocate for their cause.

The Collections


There are three types of Collections to choose from:

Each of these three offerings are uniquely designed to suit your Art budget. 

They range from affordable prints to original works on paper & canvas. 

I hope that you’ll soon own Art that you love, that moves you & that makes a difference.

With Color & love, Rachael
