Rachel Shelton is an interdisciplinary fine artist whose practice, while grounded in printmaking, also includes bookmaking, drawing, enameling, and sculpture. Her study of archaeology and anthropology has informed the overhead perspective of the evolution and organizational structures of human populations she brings to her work. Constantly improvising, testing, and pushing the boundaries of printmaking, her work centers the continuous processing of information rather than the conclusions ultimately drawn. A cofounder of Mirabo Press, Shelton received her BFA from the Cleveland Institute of Art and her MFA from the University at Buffalo.
