Meet the Creator

Rachel Davis is a mixed media artist, ikebanaist (Japanese flower arranger) and psychologist, born
and bred in New York City, and thrilled to call the San Francisco Bay Area home. She is drawn to what’s beneath the surface and can never fully be known. The skill of deep watching, and humility about ever really knowing the whole picture, are central to her work. Davis is also pulled to beauty for its own sake, and to pure play and abandon. The freedom to move back and forth between mediums and moods is central to keeping joy at the helm of her creative process.

Davis received her undergraduate degree at Barnard College, Columbia University, and, as Ruth Davis Kalb, her PhD in Clinical Psychology at Adelphi University’s Derner Institute. She’s been mentored in Ikebana for twenty plus years and has studied classical portraiture as well as mixed media art and printmaking.
