Rachel Livedalen is an interdisciplinary artist with a particular interest in print media. Her creative research explores contemporary femininity as seen through the lens of past histories and mythologies.  This usually involves the study of social practices, familial roles, and cultural phenomenon.  Pattern and repetitive marks dominate Rachel’s prints, drawings, and sculptures.  This creative interest is linked to the process of printmaking as well as traditional feminine crafts and the decorative arts.  Working collaboratively is an important part of Rachel’s studio practice.  She is a member of The Printmaker’s Left, a group of 27 radical printmakers and book artists who have exhibited their work across the county in addition to publishing limited edition books.  Moreover, Rachel makes up one half of the collaborative duo Lynn Lynn whose works operate within an exaggerated femininity.  

Rachel has exhibited her work widely and is currently an Assistant Professor of Printmaking at Texas Christian University.  She received her MFA from the University of Iowa in 2014 and her BA in Studio Art and Art History from the University of Virginia.  While at the University of Iowa, Rachel also earned a graduate certificate in book arts from the University of Iowa Center for the Book.  She currently resides in Fort Worth, Texas.
