Rachel Harmeyer
Rachel Harmeyer is a Houston-based visual artist who explores a wide variety of media in her creative work, from painting and drawing to collage, bricolage, and surface embroidery. Her current work transforms exterior adornment into anatomical interiors. She employs processes and materials traditionally used in female-centered domestic craft to interrogate the ways in which the female body has been fetishized in fashion and medical illustration.

Rachel received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and is currently a PhD student in art history at Rice University where she studies the visual and material culture of the 19th century.
