“Heavenly Alchemy” © Rachel Estrada
Name: Rachel Estrada
Bio: Rachel is a native of Northern Virginia and lives in Leesburg with her husband, William. Frequenting the National Gallery in Washington, D.C. with her three sisters when she was 8 years old is when her deep admiration for the Pre-Raphaelite artists, their dedication to excellence and her own passion for art began. Throughout high school, Rachel studied pastel and portraiture under portrait artist Patricia Rice . She briefly attended Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia where she intended to study nursing. But as she began drawing bones she quickly returned to her first love, which has always been painting. Rachel studied classical portraiture with Lisa Semerad, Timothy J. Chambers, and in New York with master pastelist, Daniel E. Greene. Rachel has work in private collections internationally, is a member of the Portrait Society of America, and is a member artist of Gallery West in old town Alexandria, Virginia. She also travels abroad for new inspiration and has painted a variety of scenes and subjects from her time in Israel, Ireland, and Greece.
