My Story

Hello! My name is Rachel and I've been painting since I was kid. In 2002 I quit my management job in the tech world to follow my artistic passion. Painting had always been a hobby, but I wanted to see if I could take it a step further, so I started a mural and decorative painting business, and was able to keep busy painting while raising my 2 daughters. In 2013, my friend and I opened up a retail studio space, Artistic Home Studio & Boutique, in our hometown of Alameda, CA. It was there I discovered my love for painting furniture, and teaching, which I still do today! Since then, I've taught furniture painting and decorative painting classes to hundreds of students in the San Francisco Bay Area. And I've been re-loving old furniture and decor for customers as well.

Several years ago, I discovered Modern Masters Metal Effects paints and patina solutions, and I was enchanted! These paints have actual metal particles in them that patina & rust when an oxidizing solution is applied. The randomness and rustic colors of these finishes are amazing, and combined with other paint products, create the beautiful rustic effects found in naturally weathered metals. I've used them on everything from furniture to garage doors to garden art - and no two pieces are ever alike! One day I decided to use them to embellish some beautiful Haitian metal artwork, and I discovered a new passion. I hope you enjoy these pieces as much as I enjoy painting them!
