Rachel D.K. Clark is a contemporary folk artist, teacher and lecturer who comes from a long line of sewers, beginning with her great-grandmother. She has been doing wearable art since 1973 and teaching on the national circuit since 1990. Eclectic fabric mixes, vibrant designs, and a keen sense of humor characterize Rachel’s work.
While Rachel's garments and quilts can be whimsical, political or a personal statement her work always reflects her love of traditional quilt making. She has done many one-woman shows around the country and her work has been featured in various gallery shows, magazines such as Threads, and “The Quilting Quarterly” on HGTV’s Simply Quilts.
Rachel has designed her own pattern line, RDKC Patterns. The line includes full patterns: "Picture This" Coat, “Picture This” Vest, The A-Line Coat, The Boxy Coat and The Flare Coat. She also has two wall quilt patterns called Scrap Happy and “Picture This” Nigerian Appliqué, as well as pattern for a "monster" sized purse called Monster Purse and a tiered skirt.
