the Art, the Artist

z Chel

(zee, chĕl)


n. Nickname. Chel is the last four letters of my name Rachel and a nickname a friend gave me. I added the Z because it sounds like pronouncing the word ‘the‘ with a French accent. And in this odd way my portfolio name was formed.


“From my earliest youth my enemies have persecuted me, but they have never defeated me. My back is covered with cuts as if a farmer had plowed long furrows. But the LORD is good! He has cut me free from the ropes of the ungodly.” Psalm 129:2-4

a New Site

I felt inspired to update my website in 2018 to not only blast my art onto the various awesome prints in our shop, but also to tell a little more of my story and all that God is doing through me. It has been a long and often tough road, but God continues to save me through his grace and definitely through the outlet of art. I would not be here today without Him. I hope that the little snippets of my story found describing my work in the art gallery strengthen and encourage you.
