She works in a variety of media, including hand-built ceramic sculpture, installation, photography and video. She was awarded a 2013–14 A.I.R. Gallery Fellowship, that culminated in a solo exhibition, “Ancestors“. Group exhibitions include “Beyond the Bed Covers” curated by Laura-Petrovich-Cheney (A.I.R. Gallery, NY), “Torn and Fired: new work in collage and clay” curated by Jason Andrew (Outlet Fine Art, Brooklyn), “Illegitimate and Herstorical,” curated by Emily Roysdon (A.I.R. Gallery, NY), “#throwbackthursday / #flashbackfriday,” juried by Scott Chasse and Hrag Vartanian (Calico, NY), and “Land + Place + Performance,” curated by Laura Allred Hurtado (Granary Art Center, UT).

Rachel’s work is included in the Feminist Art Base (digital archive, Brooklyn Museum) and she was a resident artist, through the Artist Studios Program, at the Museum of Arts & Design (2016). Solo exhibitions include an installation at the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay and Lesbian Art (2017) and an upcoming exhibition at the Granary Art Center (summer 2018) .
