Rachel Pierce will be doing Art Demo’s and an Art Talk 2pm & 6pm Saturday December 5th
Many will recognize Rachel Pierce as a long-time TV journalist, yet what they may not know is she has recently shifted all her focus to her artwork. A daughter of the Midwest, she grew up in the small town of Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin, and now calls SouthWest Florida her home. After serving her communities as a journalist for 19 years, Rachel transitioned into art in a very unexpected way. As a popular local celebrity, she emcee’d dozens of events each year. During one event she was asked to be a celebrity painter and so graciously created a piece to auction off to benefit the non-profit. Everyone was surprised by her talent, and soon other people began requesting her to paint something for their organization’s fundraisers as well. That’s when the numerous commission’s started to take form. Within a year of selling her first painting the hobby became a second career, selling dozens of pieces and donating dozens more. A few months later she decided to make art her job, leaving TV news.
Rachel’s “Ocean Treasures” collection focuses on the wonder found in our local waters and draws one’s attention to the fantastic creatures that are all around us. Rachel Pierce is constantly inspired by our beautiful location on this planet. The South Florida region is a playground for colorful flowers, amazing birds, and unique sea creatures. Rachel’s realistic sea turtles, fish, dolphins, manatees, and octopus subjects come to life on her modern flowing backdrops. Her use of bright colors seeks to share the emotions of joy that Rachel feels when she paints.
