Rachel Stavrowsky Hurst
Rachel is the eighth and youngest child of famed western artist Oleg Stavrowsky and her beloved mother, Carol Stavrowsky. Growing up, she was surrounded by world-class art created by her father and siblings. In this way, she was lucky to be trained in the principals of good painting design and technique through exposure.
She won her first art contest in 3rd grade but put art aside and didn’t pick it up again until her early 30s. Rachel owned a very successful decorative painting company for 14 years, making her living painting enormous ceiling and wall murals in the Italian fresco style. She recently began discovering her passion for fine art incorporating two of her favorite things: animals & patterns. She utilizes color and pattern to frame the animals in the way they make her feel when she looks at them. She is well known for her pet portraits, and she donates 10% of all of her art sale profits to animal charities.
She grew up in Austin, Texas and earned a BA in Psychology from the University of Washington. No stranger to competition, she spent her childhood devoted to competitive figure skating, she holds a national 8-ball title, and she won a tournament qualifying her to play on the World Series of Poker (where she was summarily kicked to the curb... you can’t win ‘em all!). She formerly competed on the Women’s Professional Billiard Association Tour. She is an avid cruciverbalist and lives with her husband Travis and three (!) cats in Austin, Texas.
