Rachel Arndt is a first generation Colorado-native in a family of die-hard Cheeseheads. As a small child, Rachel aspired strongly towards the sciences. Despite this, Rachel had a very active imagination, and expressed herself through art throughout her childhood and into high school, where she found the encouragement she needed to progress her skill. However, It wasn’t until after she graduated with an Associates in Science at Northeastern Junior College, Colorado, that she actually considered Illustration as a profession, but she still keeps a close relationship to research and the sciences.
One of her favorite subjects to illustrate is the philosophical, theoretical, and socially difficult relationship between the metaphysical and the scientific, what some would call pseudoscience. Most of her work is relatively serious, despite being an outgoing individual. While graduating officially as an Illustrator from the University of Colorado, Denver, she considers herself to be a fine-art illustrator and otherwise excels in portraiture and mural painting.
