Meet the Artist

Rachelle Zukerman

My earliest memory of myself creating art, is of sitting on the living room carpet by my father’s armchair, drawing pictures with a pencil on the newsprint pad my father bought me. I attended art classes throughout my childhood and majored in art in high school.

As an adult, my focus shifted to a career in academia. I became a tenured UCLA professor, a Fulbright Scholar and authored six books in the fields of Social Work and Gerontology. While that was extremely satisfying, I never lost my love for art and for making beautiful things. I retired from the university in 2003 to pursue this passion full time.
