Guest Artist: Rachael Holton

Rachael Holton is a recently discovered gem and is known for her textured and deeply moving artwork. Originally from Genoa, Nevada, Rachael attended art school at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon. She graduated with a BA in Fine Art and went on to earn a Masters Degree in Museum Studies, specializing in Exhibition and Design from San Francisco State University.

She began her professional career as a Gallery Director in 2001, building and managing art galleries both in the Bay Area and Maui. Rachael was also the Curator of the exhibition, "Generations - A Tribute to Mothers and Daughters Around the World." The exhibition was backed by the International Museum of Women in San Francisco and the UCSF Medical Center of Excellence. The exhibition’s panel consisted of nationally known surgeons, celebrities and museum board members. Holton has over twenty years experience in the gallery and fine art industry.

In 2014, Rachael retired from the gallery business and launched Rachael Holton Fine Art - a new line of artwork with her father, Steve Holton, a retired Builder and Project Engineer. Together, Rachael and her father work daily on creating a unique line of quality built frames and artwork in their studio in Haiku, Maui.
