Rachel Rose Morrissey
Painter in Holbrook, Massachusetts
Rachel was born in the late 80s in Dorchester, Massachusetts and grew up in the Connecticut suburbs. Rachel's current body of work is a response to how people view the real world through a digital lens. Her paintings reference life before and after social media feeds. She creates loud and obscure landscapes using digital references. Her experience as a graphic designer has influenced the style and colors of her paintings. This steers the paintings into a curious mashup of screens, social media, neons, landscapes and mark-making.
Rachel received her MFA in May 2016 from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. She also earned a Post-Baccalaureate degree from The School of the Museum of Fine Arts in 2014 and a BFA in Studio Art from Indiana University in 2009. She is a mom, graphic designer and abstract painter creating works in her home studio. She lives with her husband and son in Holbrook, Massachusetts.
