Rachel Parker (American)

Rachel Parker, cat artistRachel Parker is an internationally collected watercolor artist.  Her work has been showcased in both local and national magazines, including the cover of the American Veterinarian Association journal.  Parker, who has studied with world renowned artist Tom Lynch, says that her inspiration is making her subject come alive through painting.  Rachel works primarily in watercolor because she loves the sense of light this medium conveys.  In all her paintings, she tries to make light the central theme.  “Dramatic lighting can make a potato sack beautiful.  Light is a life-giving force, and this is true in a painting as well – it breathes vitality and a sense of awe into the every day,” says Rachel.  As the daughter of an artist, she has always been immersed in the world of art and loves to share her passion with her patrons and the public through her website www.rachelsstudio.com.

Rachel says, “I don’t know what it is about painting cats, but I can’t get enough! I’m sure it’s those incredible eyes, which reflect their quirky personalities, intelligence, and warmheartedness. My best friend was once a cat. He would lie on my chest with his purring chin on mine, and we would fall asleep that way. I remember thinking at that moment that this was the most blissful I could possibly be. I hope whomever buys this art treasures it as a memento and celebration of all the wonderfulness that is kitty!”
