Rachel Wright received her BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and her MFA from Southern Illinois University at Carbondale. She has traveled overseas and considers these experiences to be as much a part of her education as her time in school.

Rachel has exhibited in New York, Chicago, New Orleans, Mobile, Pensacola, Birmingham. Charleston, and Panama City, FL. She has work in a number of collections, including the Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum. Her work is primarily sculptural, mixing media such as glass, clay, steel, wood, wax, fabric, & photographs. She is married to ceramic artist Tony Wright, and the two live happily on the gulf coast in Mobile, where they both teach at the University of South Alabama.
