Born Los Angeles, California. Rachele is a figurative oil painter and award winning artist.
A graduate of UCLA and of the Florence Academy of Art/ US.
Rachele most recently received top awards for her work, Best Still Life and Best Ecorche, while studying at the Florence Academy of Art.
Since 2007 Rachele has trained and studied in the Classical Realist tradition.
Inspired by the intelligence & beauty exhibited in the work of the Old Masters, Rachele has traveled the US. and Europe to obtain the best training possible.
For the last ten years she has studied under the tutelage of many of the most prominent painters living today.
Her training has brought her to Paris France, where she studied with Studio Escalier and spent two winters drawing daily from the collection at the Musee du Louvre.
Rachele’s greatest growth as an artist has come through the study of nature, the human figure.
Fascinated by the beauty & movement inherent in all organic form, Rachele has extensively studied Artistic Anatomy, including gross anatomical study.
Her practice of astute visual observation has led to paintings that are filled with light, clarity & presence. Her work exhibits a splendor and a quiet beauty, rarely seen in paintings today.
Currently she divides her studio time between the East and West Coast of the United States.
