About

The day I walked into my first painting class 2 years ago changed the way I see the world.  I love to study the shapes, colors, and light around me.  I am a diligent student constantly trying to expand my understanding of different techniques in oil and watercolor.  I often set up lessons for myself and don’t move for hours once I get started on a piece.  Painting is my reward.

Recently I have been based in Oxford, UK reading for an MBA, but just arrived back home in San Francisco.

I sell my pieces on Vango to fund the purchase of materials! Thank you for supporting an [enthusiastic] up-and-coming artist.

    I’m not sure if this is the proper way to communicate with you but I wasn’t able to find another method as I did not see an email for you. My name is Barry Stiefel and my wife and I purchased one of your paintings on VanGo. We love your work and are moving into a new home and started with one piece to see how it would look.

    It is actually the first only piece piece of art we have purchased on
    that site so far. The problem I am having is that the site does not seem to have any
    section where you can see an order placed
    with information about
    shipping and tracking. I am assuming that The site acts as a kind of gallery and forwards the purchase to the artist who in turn fulfills it. If that is how it works I have no idea then whether or not you
    have gone ahead and shipped the art to us or are in the process of doing so. The issue is that we travel a bit and the post office and shipping services have a habit of just leaving things on our porch which is safe but not from the elements and the last thing I would want is the box with your painting sitting in the rain. We live in Millsboro Delaware which is on the Atlantic shore coast. Could you please get back to me and let me know if you have the information on the purchase we made and if and when you were going to ship it… And a tracking number to follow it. Thank you so much and I look forward to purchasing more of your paintings in the future.

    • Hi Barry, thank you so much for checking in. And you’re always welcome to email me directly at rachaelflorence@yahoo.com. I’m beyond trilled that you purchased an piece from me. I shipped it just yesterday. I do apologize for the delay / concern it caused you. I, myself, have been traveling and am just now home. I will find the tracking number for you. What’s your email? Maybe better than responding via the blog. Best :). Rachael
