Coffee and Art = Happiness


Drop by Circle St. Beanery in Corvallis, Oregon to see my original Art Journal pages on display through January. ~Thank you for your support!~



Author: Rachel

My paintings and art journals are a combination of both traditional art techniques and mixed media explorations. I am primarily inspired by nature, pattern and abstract form. I am continually aiming to unearth my inner worlds, and find my work is on an exciting path of discovery. See more at

  1. Hi Rachel! I love your artwork & the way you infuse Nature & life into your paintings. Your use of bright & diverse colors really catches my eye & inspires positive energy. Thank you for sharing your gift with the world….you are truly making a difference in this community of Corvallis. I am thinking about attending one of your workshops. It looks like fun! Have a wonderful week, my friend!

    1. Hi Tyler,
      Thank you for the fabulous comment! Wow. I really thank you, this keeps me inspired to keep putting my work out there.
      It would be great to meet you and have you take one of my workshops! I think with your unique background in poetry and writing, you could create a wonderfully vibrant art journaling practice for yourself. The two merge nicely!

      Feeling full of gratitude, thank you again.
      Have a great week too!


      1. I forgot to share with you this amazing art journaling group on facebook. You shouldn’t need permission to join…you can see the diverse practices and ask questions. It is a very supportive group! Click here to view:


      2. You are most welcome, Rachel! I totally agree. Art journaling has always fascinated me. I took a lot of art classes in high school & college, but got burned out…this year I want to start drawing again. Poetry & photography have helped me stay sharp during my hiatus…I love concrete poetry & would like to incorporate my word art in a journal. I’m currently looking for work, so I should have time to attend one of your workshops. Have a great day, my friend πŸ™‚


Would love to hear your thoughts!
