Except for stints in Italy and the Sonoran Desert, Rachelle Díaz has been a Texas resident her entire life, in big cities and bucolic wide-spots-in-the-road alike. She currently works as a freelance graphic designer in Austin.

She graduated summa cum laude with a B.A. in Studio Art and a minor in Graphic Design from St. Edward’s University in 2002. Rachelle also studied printmaking and sculpture at SACI in Florence, Italy.

She worked with DiverseArts Culture Works for four years and served as art director for two ground-breaking publications, Austin Downtown Arts magazine and The BackWord online magazine. She was a founding member artist of the AVAA Gallery & Studios in 2003 and Pump Project Art Complex, where she served as publicist from 2005 to 2008.

After moving to Tucson in 2008, Rachelle started Tu Scene, the city’s only art blog, co-founded Pop Up Spaces, an interactive/performance art/design activism collective, and participated as a designer, stylist and model for local fashion shows. Since returning to Austin in 2010, she has reconnected with her friends and colleagues in the area art community.
