My name is Rachel Urista. I grew up in the suburbs outside of Los Angeles in the 80s -90’s and come from a multi-racial family. My childhood was infused with a lot of Japanese culture and at times, you may catch glimpses of this early suburban/urban landscape reflected in my art.
I now make my home in the college town of Corvallis, Oregon, in the lush Willamette Valley.
