What's your pandemic coping mechanism? Rachel's is art.. and cats. Jailbreak has been promoting the work of Rachel Mulder since 2016, and the opportunity to watch her grow and experiment with many different mediums has been a real gift. These freehand gel pen line drawings are no exception to her prolific curiosity and self expression.
In her own words:
CUD OF MY HEART
Surreal friends borne from my latest personal brain activity: looking in the shadows, drinking night coffee, gel pens, my mom telling me what to do from beyond the grave, being in a body, a conversation about hair shirt, emotional processing, obsession, desire, acceptance, shedding, grounding, stretching, unraveling, floating, breathing, and asking my hands what they want to say.
Each of these digital prints is printed in house at Jailbreak and offered in two sizes of 100% linen archival paper:
- 8.5" H x 11" W
- 12" H x 18" W

Rachel Mulder has a diverse skill set, using conventional and unconventional mediums to make her art.

Rachel Mulder earned her BFA in Printmaking from the Milwaukee Institute of Art & Design and has since adapted those printmaking techniques and processes into other art forms, which she always calls "drawing" regardless of what tools or media she uses. She lives with her two cats, Opal and Tomasina.
