Exploring my Art!
A word from Rachel Arntson
I have loved my first and only career as a speech-language pathologist, but I have also had many hobbies over the years. Whether it be writing a song for my Talk It Rock It sets, drawing pictures for the Blast Off Board, or making a mosaic, my true passion is creating things!
As I embrace semi-retirement, I have had more time to explore my art, primarily focusing on mosaics and drawing.
Rachel’s Goals in her Art
- To bring a smile to others
- To help find the child in each of us
- To support causes such as the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society
One night, while on a video chat with my granddaughter, she asked me to color with her. We frequently do “art time” on our video chats. During that visit I created a snowman picture that morphed into 9 additional snowman scenes. This drawing journey resulted in the Snowman Series Greeting Cards available on our Shopping page. Additional greeting cards and other art will be added as they are completed.
I have continued to explore drawing with ink, pencil, and colored pencil. I encourage whimsy, but also more thoughtful themes as well. I also love drawing scenes from my past trips around the world. I will continue to add to my collection on our Shopping page. Come back often.
I have been creating mosaics for many years now and have woodburned and painted for most of my life. I often combine these 3 art forms into my creations. One of my dreams is to create whimsical, child-loving mosaics for pediatric clinics, hospitals, schools, and children’s bedrooms. My mosaics focus on many themes –
- Scenes from photos I have taken on my many journeys
- Whimsical and child-like creations
- Holiday mosaics, especially Christmas creations
Race medal hangers – These are created as fund raisers for Team in Training, an endurance race organization that raises funds for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
