Rachel Ungerer is a local Bay Area, queer, disabled artist. She uses gestural brushstrokes to capture fleeting moments of emotion.
After developing a constant chronic pain condition that limits the use of both hands, Ungerer re-trained herself to paint by working with her disabled body. By publicly identifying as someone with an invisible disability, Ungerer hopes to promote greater awareness and eliminate negative stigmas.
Ungerer’s lifelong passion for art inspired her to earn a major in Arts from the University of California at Los Angeles with a focus on painting. Her work has shown in Los Angeles, Louisville KY, San Francisco, Mill Valley, and Palo Alto.
