Rachel Shultz was born in Los Angeles, California. Mostly self taught- She was born into a family of artists and at a very young age saw her parents happy at work making art a way of life. The house was always buzzing with creativity. Several rooms in the house were devoted to the process of making art and the doors to those rooms were never closed. It was an environment ripe to inspire the young minds of Rachel and her two brothers, also painters, Adam and Josh Shultz. Her parents, Jack and Carole Shultz were early pioneers in the L.A. street art festival scene back in the early 70s. They worked together as a creative team exploring various mediums including sculpture and painting.
Early on Rachel discovered that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree and began to explore her own creative impulse. She studied Art and Art History at Santa Monica Jr. College and in her last year was awarded the mentorship scholarship to the San Francisco Art Institute under Prof. Mario Barratucci. She studied there in 1996 and used her time there to explore her interest in sculpture and various other mediums before finding painting to be her true love.
Since then she has been showing her work in galleries and Art Festivals throughout California. She has a devoted following of art lovers who enthusiastically collect her work.
