Uchizono, Rachel




Rachel Uchizono lives in Laguna Beach, CA. She paints local canyon and ocean scenes. Painting on location or plein air, small studies are brought back to the studio to use as inspiration for larger paintings. Peacocks are also a favorite subject and flowers from her garden. Rachel has an adventurous palette and paints with an impressionistic distinctive style.

“The technique of painting sounds simple yet getting the values right and putting only the necessary information from a complex scene can be a challenge.” Her paintings are soulful and express the joy and beauty of nature. Rachel has studied with Ray Roberts, Mark Kerckhoff, Ken Auster, Cynthia Britain and Saim Caglayan.
