Rachel Longstreet grew up in a suburb outside of Kansas City, Missouri then ventured north to pursue a BFA with a painting focus and a BA in philosophy from St. Ambrose University. In 2013, she completed an MFA in painting at the University of Minnesota with a minor in art history. She and her husband packed their bags and headed south to be in the lively art and literary tradition of New Orleans. Her practice is primarily concerned with the celebration of looking at the world and the process of recording what is observed.
