Rachael Bohlander, a painter and mixed media artist, currently resides in Washington, D.C.
Now a student at the Washington Studio School, Bohlander combines a legal background in international public law and public policy with a strong interest in social justice issues, to create expressive, urban-influenced works based on democratic iconography and photographs the artist has taken throughout D.C. and when traveling.
In addition to D.C., Bohlander has lived and worked in New York, New Orleans, Amsterdam, and Munich, Germany, among other cities. A professional photographer, she has traveled extensively solo by motorcycle throughout the U.S. and India, and continues to draw upon those experiences to inform her artwork.
Most recently, Bohlander enjoyed a successful summer, with her work showing in four juried shows around the city. She is looking forward to taking part in the Single Artists Exhibitions at Hill Center, Washington, D.C., this fall.
