Rachel Wilcox is a New England artist who was born and raised in Haverhill, Massachusetts. She graduated from The Rhode Island School of Design in 1998 with a BFA in Illustration.
In her current work, Rachel is exploring the rich culture of the beach communities around her home.
"I grew up coming to the beaches of Seabrook, Hampton and Salisbury. Eating beach pizza, walking the Strip and playing in the arcades on a hot summer day are for me, synonymous with childhood. I worry about the long rich history of this area being lost in the name of urban development. As such, I feel a sense of urgency to record some of the quirky cottages and business that make this part of the coast so unique.”
Rachel currently works out of her studio in Amesbury, MA and her artwork can be found in public and private collections throughout the country.
