Spread the word about Rachel Cadrin
Yoga-teaching artist brings therapeutic expertise
Hailing from Lloydminster, Alberta, Rachel Cadrin always had a passion for creating. However, after a year at the University of Calgary she realized she needed to explore the world before digging deeper into her art education.
Taking a year out, Rachel travelled to Africa and New Zealand. During her travels she discovered Yoga which drastically shifted her views on life. Returning home, subsequently, Rachel studied a Bachelors in Painting at the Alberta College of Art and Design, graduating with Distinction. Rachel credits her time spent travelling with impacting the work she created during her degree.
“I view my art as I view my life: a journey that is evolving with each day, moment, and breath. Much like my life I am not passive in my art journey, nor am I solely in control; the canvas, paint, and I work together to create."
Rachel’s work focuses on chance and materiality. She uses a variety of mediums to achieve unique outcomes. Rachel enjoys co-creating with the unpredictability of the media she uses to create ambiguous pieces which are open to interpretation.
“I have long been fascinated with colour and creating spaces using colours. My work provides the audience with the opportunity to create their own story, emotion and thoughts about each piece. I believe art should evoke a feeling, emotion or a new way of thinking. I hope my work does this for you."
Rachel currently lives in Calgary where she paints, teaches Yoga and works as a qualified counsellor and art therapist.
