Donna Wocher is known for her vibrant abstract colorful paintings. Her paintings contain impressions of nature, places, and people. A flowing, moving, energy is evident in her images. The compositional lines are energetic and jumpy. Donna imbues her abstracts with color. Color that’s active and quirky, bold, and demure. Through color you enter a world of emotions, thoughts, dreamscapes and corporal worlds. The idea is for the color to sing you awake and into the world; to enjoy beauty and delight in being alive.
She uses many tools and layers of resins, pastes, and glazes to create depth. Layers are added and subtracted in a sort of peek a boo game to get the finished composition. The initial layers create a hide and seek of textures and patterns where anything is possible until definite choices are made to finish the piece.

Rachel Tirosh’s second act as an artist is proof of life beyond high-tech.A self-taught artist, she grew up in a family who believed in the do-it-yourself model.
Rachel’s first career was in electrical engineering. She spent a significant amount of time learning and following specific rules to design electronic systems. With art, this is not the case and she relishes the freedom of no right or wrong way to create. There are no rules, so she isn’t breaking any. Art simply invites the desire for free expression without boundaries. She is playing with texture and colors to evoke feelings of balance, tranquility, peace of mind, and harmony through her art.
Rachel now participates in a variety of exhibitions, art fairs and open studios throughout the Northern California Bay Area. Her work can be viewed at ACCI Gallery in Berkeley and Gallery 9 Los Altos CA.

She has been exploring her passion for painting off and on most of her life, sharing her work with friends and family and exhibiting in venues across the SF Bay Area. She is also a freelance writer and editor who helps her clients navigate today’s tricky marketing communications landscape.
