Rachel Rice-Baham

Artist + Rachel Rice-Baham

Born in the early 1980's to a military family in the state of California, much of my childhood was spent relocating to "new" bases, in "new" towns, and "new" states and each time having to start over as the "new" kid. It was a difficult process, not easy for any child at any age.

In an attempt to better manage the ever-flowing out pour of emotions that came with the constant change of being the forever "new" kid, I found solace amidst the pages of my sketchbooks, exploring the prospects and promise of my own inherently artistic imagination. Here, I was never the "new" kid, and every day seemed an illustration of magic, painted with flowers and fairy tales.     

Over time, this once crucial "crutch" became the essence on which I built my life. For those who knew me "back when", their wasn't a memory made that didn't have Rachel in the background wielding, at minimum, a box of crayons and a Care Bears coloring book. The same can still be said today, in some capacity, whether it be specifically creating art or "starting" DIY projects around the house and for family members. (The "italics" are for my husband, lol. He will understand. *wink*wink* )

It was in 2016, following a pretty significant life event, that I decided to turn a more acute focus towards the creation of my painted compositions and the refinement of my artistic perspective. Today, I remain ambitiously concentrated on the cultivation of the study & creation of "emotionally stimulating, non-conformance" abstracts.

My Objective - a more intimate self-awareness through the manifestation of a "forced subjection to my own subconscious." In other words...I paint my feelings. It is through this methodical and arduous process of developing my technique, that I aspire to attain a more prolific acknowledgement and appreciation of my higher self and the world around me.

Being completely self-taught in my methods, styles and practices, I believe it is this elemental component, specifically, that enables me to create deliberate, unencumbered works that openly articulate who I am to the world, without fear of vulnerability or subjection.
