Original Colored Pencil Drawings

by Rachael Koppendrayer

Visit Night Art Gallery in Lindstrom MN to see Original Colored Pencil Drawings by Rachael Koppendrayer.

“Raised on the small dairy farm in Randall, Minnesota that my great-grandfather established when he emigrated from Sweden in the late 1800’s, I grew up surrounded by field and pasture, woods and swamp—all ripe for exploration and inspiration. I discovered my love of wildflowers at age eleven when we braved the mosquitoes and water-logged cattails to see the showy lady’s slippers in popple island in the middle of the swamp. While I have been photographing wildflowers since that day, after college I transitioned to drawing them in colored pencil as well. It wasn’t until the ladies of my prayer group encouraged me that I began pursuing colored pencil art as a profession. Minnesota nature and farm life—with a nod to my family’s Swedish heritage—have provided much of my inspiration. My next series will be looking again at lady’s slippers—or moccasin flowers, as they are sometimes called—and drawing them with an indigenous twist.”
