I'd never seen anything like it.

The room was alive and abuzz, packed to the brim with art enthusiasts looking for a moment to chat with the artist while others mulled around enjoying the colorful vistas covering the walls of her studio.

 This space belonged to contemporary landscape painter, Rachel Teannalach.

 A mutual friend took me along to meet her while I was on a trip to Boise Idaho.

I couldn’t help but feel impressed. I simply had to find out more. 

Who is Rachel?

What inspires her?

How did she manage to get this room filled with so many art fans that they would even wait in line to swipe their cards to purchase a piece or one of her many products?

I was overjoyed when Rachel said YES to this interview. 


In this episode you will hear:


  • Why Rachel just simply can’t stop making her art
  • How she prepared herself to be a successful working artist
  • What smart steps she took to set up solid revenue streams around her creativity
  • How she manages to juggle a busy family and still find time to make her art
  • What meaningful collaborations have transformed her business
  • What she loves most (and least) about being an artist
  • More about her latest projects....and so much more 


If you ever wondered how busy people actually find the time to make their art then get ready to be inspired by Rachel's story. 



For as long as she can remember Rachel has loved to paint. She has turned her passion for painting into daily practices that have now fueled so much of her success. 


Her work is characterized by bold, gestural brushstrokes and her ability to evoke the emotional quality of the places she paints.


Rachels work is guided by the belief that the observation of nature revives our recognition of beauty and restores our sense of belonging in the natural world.

Her work inspires viewers to become more conscious of their surroundings and take time to stop and take notice.

Besides original works, Rachel has found clever ways to turn her art into reproductions which have become a major source of her income.


Her focus over the last several years has been collaborations with conservation organizations, supporting their efforts to preserve the lands she loves to paint.


Rachel is known especially for her "tinyExpanse" daily paintings, which can be purchased on Etsy, along with small works and prints. Her work also encompasses large scale landscapes and occasional cityscapes and portraiture.
