Artist Biography

Rachel grew up in the small town of Oil City PA where she was surrounded by a creative and artistic family. From an early age her love for drawing far outweighed all other things and soon she wanted nothing but to be an artist. With her family’s encouragement she began to pursue art as a career and Rachel graduated Summa Cum Laude from St. Vincent College with a bachelor in Studio Arts in 2017. Too this day she continues to perfect her talents by working as a professional artist in Latrobe, PA. Her recent achievements include acceptance into the Mr. Fred Rodgers Juried Exhibit (2018), holding her first solo exhibit ‘First Light’ (2019), and starting her own art business (Rachel Wheeler Arts) where she currently creates portraits of beloved pets, loving families, precious children, and beautiful scenery.
