Rachel Gregor is a fine artist living and working in Kansas City, MO.  She graduated from Kansas City Art Institute in 2012 and has studied abroad at Studio Art Centers International in Florence, Italy.  She was born and raised in Minnesota.

Working in traditional mediums such as oil paint & gouache, Gregor seeks to create psychological portraits of young girls that tip-toe between the line of realism and artificiality.  The figures are caught in a single moment between the mundane and the melodramatic; wide-eyed and wistful, the girls become frozen in a state somewhere between boredom and shock.
