Rachel Ungerer is a Bay Area local artist. Throughout her childhood Ungerer enjoyed making art, creating everything from collage to stained glass. Ungerer’s passion for art drove her to earn a major in Fine Arts from the University of California at Los Angeles with a focus on painting. Her work has shown in Los Angeles, Louisville, and San Francisco.
Ungerer lives and works with a disability that is not visible by looking at her. Her work was created while in chronic pain and with limited use of her hands. By publicly identifying as someone with an invisible disability, Ungerer hopes to bring awareness to invisible disabilities and eliminate the negative stigma surrounding disability in our culture.
