Meet Rachel Albano, an abstract painter from Elora, Ontario.

Rachel’s paintings are an intuitive process; multiple layers are covered and revealed until they culminate in a cohesive piece that testifies to this process.

Rachel was educated at the University of Guelph with a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Studio Art and Art History.
