For me, art goes beyond beauty, but I find it a great hook. The intention of my creative work is to socially engage by observing the universality of experiences and sharing stories that reveal a deeper understanding of our lives.

Rachel Siegel lives in Portland, Oregon. She teaches photography for Portland Community College. Her artistic work includes photography, digital prints, artist’s books, video and installation work. Rachel weaves together multiple interests, often using humor and playfulness to investigate issues that are significant to her: including body image, family, health and labor. Rachel works on collaborative and solo projects. She has exhibited nationally and internationally, received grant funding for projects and her work is owned by private and institutional collections. Her MFA is from University at Buffalo, State University New York. And her BFA is from University of California, Berkeley.
