Austin based artist, Rachel Dickson, has been honing her artistic skills for the past decade. After the death of her brother in 2014 and then of her son's biological mom in 2015, she used art as a form of therapy to deal with anger and heartache. She decided to pursue painting as a full-time career in 2018. She uses art as a therapy, and her work showcases the vast mix of emotions that encompass grief. She specializes in watercolors and frequently uses acrylic and collage. The female form is prevalent in her work and her use of color and white space are the foundation of each piece.
