Artist and Los Alamos resident, Rachel Pearson has earned placement in many juried shows and awards in the few short years since her return to art making. Soft pastels are her favorite medium. They allow her to achieve a painterly feel along with enthusiastic mark-making. On February 14th, she will spend her time in the Rotunda creating artworks in the style of plein air painters, offering a different, more artistic perspective of the everyday happenings in the Rotunda when the legislature is in session.

In 2018 she graduated from the Harp For Healing Certification program and became a therapeutic musician playing for hospice and nursing facilities.
