Rachel Heimbigner was born and raised in Tacoma, WA. She knew she wanted to be an artist at a very early age, and so began her exploration of working in different mediums in pursuit of her calling. In 2003, she graduated from The Art Institute of Seattle with an Associates Degree in Graphic Design and Illustration. She soon realized that, although intriguing, the digital arts were not her calling. In 2005, however, she began working in oils as well as studying the old masters' paintings and drawings. She was intrigued and immediately began applying their techniques, styles and general rules to her own work. Even while working through various employments, she continued to practice and refine her own techniques and executions. To this day she remains as excited about oils as those early years in her career. She also creates her own oil paints and glazing mediums by mixing pure pigments and oil, just as the old masters did. Methodically layering her colors and glazes to produce gem/like richness and depth in her paintings which are intended to remain indefinitely vibrant, full of content and as visually impactful as her skill set allows. The first of Dali's Ten Rules for those who want to become an artist says - "learn to paint well so that your brush bears gold and precious stones'. She has held his statement close to her heart through the years, always trying to convey that kind of excellence in her own work.
