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.
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.
