Rachel Brownlee is a self-taught artist from the Nebraska Sandhills. She studied software engineering at the University of Nebraska in Omaha. She first began her artistic career in her teenage years when she began selling commission pieces of fine art. Her work is inspired by the harsh practicality and traditionalism of life in the Sandhills and she seeks to show highly realistic details of that life in a modern way. Brownlee’s work has traditionally focused on portraying extreme realism, but is moving toward a more emotional response to realism.
Rachel has been drawing since she could hold a pencil. She was home educated and no art education was available so she taught herself. Living on a cattle ranch, most of her work is focused on the cowboy lifestyle and cattle ranching. After working as a software engineer in Omaha, Rachel returned to the Sandhills of Nebraska in 2016 and has been focusing on her artwork. She has participated in many regional and state shows, including the 2021 Nebraska Biennial Art Show. She currently lives on the JHL Cattle ranch in Ashby, Nebraska with her husband and daughter.
