Rachel Teannalach is a contemporary landscape painter based in Boise, Idaho. Originally from northern New Mexico, she has also painted extensively in northern California. Her traveling pack has taken her from Marin County to Iceland and many places between.
Teannalach's focus over the last several years has been collaborations with conservation organizations, supporting their efforts to preserve the lands she loves to paint. She is known especially for her "tinyExpanse" daily paintings along with her large-scale landscapes which utilize raw, bold brushstrokes and a simplification of form to bring focus to the essential beauty of a place.
Her work is guided by the belief that the observation of nature revives our recognition of beauty and restores our sense of belonging in the natural world. For Teannalach, painting provides a way to step out of the frenzy that life so easily becomes, to appreciate both stillness and the beauty of passing time. Her work inspires viewers to leave, in W.B. Yeats’ words, “a little space for the rose-breath to fill.”
