Meet Jack Black, hardcore hamster
Art.  Attitude.  Atomic Love.
Welcome to my website.  Thank you for visiting.
Hi.  I'm Rachelle Rose.
With the millions of surfing destinations available on the internet, I'm flattered that you'd spend a few minutes here with me.  So, thank
you for taking the time to read a little about me on my quirky little website.

My formal training and college degrees are in fine art, music, and elementary education.  I draw, paint, take lots of pictures, and generally
make unusual crafty things when I can.  My favorite medium changes all the time, but I always end up reacquainting with watercolor.  It
cleanses my soul.  It is my other language.  I also custom paint old records, Maneki Nekos, gyotaku, tee shirts, and mandalas.  I make
beaded jewelry.  I make stained glass mosaics.  I also play with garbage.  I make things with found objects.  I have a crazy fetish for any
and all kind of pens and calligraphy or handwritten ephemera.  If you take me to an office supply store, I can spend at least an hour
looking only at pens and weighing every possible option.  This is true.  Ask my very patient husband.

Some of my influences are Klimt, Dali, Hieronymous Bosch, Chuck Close, loud music, the Saturday morning cartoons of my youth, any sort
of animation, Takashi Murakami, my relatives Rivka and Betty Schaffner, Don Snell, Anime, Manga, the elegant art of Etegami, particularly
esoteric or ridiculous fortune cookies, photobooth photography, incredibly silly pop culture, my disjunct, bizarre, and sometimes grotesque
dreams, zombie movies, the genius of Carl Jung, art nouveau, psychedelic art, geometric art forms in nature, and the coolest classic
cartoon lady of all time: my hero, Betty Boop.

I cook.  From scratch.  All cuisines.  'Nuff said.

I only listen to one kind of music.  The good kind.

I am superstitious.

Sometimes I try to see molecules.

Despite my surname, my favorite flower is actually the daisy.

I love the smell of oranges.

I like to put potato chips on my sandwiches to make them crunchy.

I am a Leo and I was born in the Year of the Monkey.

I do not believe in heaven or hell.
Astroboy and Astrogirl will escort you to the places to visit on my site.  I hope you enjoy your stay.
How would you design a silent alarm clock?
Did I know you in a past life?
Can you freak me out with a scary story?
Send me art.  Send me haiku.  Send me recipes that require knowledge of the Dewey decimal system.
If you dare.

Thank you especially to
my husband, who is a visionary and musician extraordinaire.  Before I made this website, I wasn't sure if I should,
because I wasn't sure if I had anything interesting to say. But h
e convinced me that I did.
So
, thanks.
Rock on.
