Rachel Kaye is a draftswoman and painter who also dabbles in sculpture and textile design. These colored pencil drawings are a practice in meditation: exploring color, hidden symbols and motion, while thinking about the seasons and their change in mood. Drawing is just a portion of Kaye's practice, but it has always been at the core of her work. She often relies on it as a constant medium when in pause from other works in progress.
Rachel Kaye was born in 1981 and resides in San Francisco. She graduated with her BFA from California College of the Arts in San Francisco, CA. Kaye has exhibited nationally and internationally in Paris, Tokyo, San Francisco, Oakland, New York, Los Angeles & Palm Beach. Kaye has collaborated with her husband, artist Jay Nelson on exhibitions as well, blurring the line of artistic ownership and site specific sculpture. She recently completed a large scale mural for the Hook Fish Restaurant in the Outer Sunset of San Francisco. And has completed murals for Chandran Gallery and Facebook (Menlo Park CA). Her work has been featured in the Huffington Post, Refinery 29, Artsy & East Bay Express. You can view her work at www.rachelakaye.com
