In the last few months we have been hard at work bring you all the information we can on the DC art scene and connecting you with artists we love. It is about time you meet the fabulous women that are so passionate about ArtSee and the art of DC! They are our enthusiasts of words…
Rachel Nania, our chief writing enthusiast, covers our gallery reviews, artist interviews and all of ArtSee’s news. She is a freelance writer based in Washington, D.C., tackling a variety of topics from art, to food, lifestyle, news and events. A former health communication and public relations professional, Rachel brings a unique perspective to the ArtSee team. When not writing, she now enjoys the chaotic mix of nannying and practicing yoga whenever she can. You can follow Rachel on Twitter at @rnania or on her amazing blog, Sear, Simmer & Stir where she indulges in her passion for the culinary arts.
Jamie, our DC and abroad life enthusiast, is a fashion, food, and happy hour lover, with a background in art history. She finds pleasure and intrigue in the design of objects, images, and stories. She has a wanderlust-y soul and travels the world with her husband, who she affectionately refers to as Gman. When she’s not traveling, she explores the bars, restaurants, art museums, and shops of Washington D.C. You can also find her curled up in her great-grandmother’s chair, drinking coffee or wine, while perusing magazines and blogs. Check out her stories in art, fashion, travel, and wine over at her blog High Heeled Traveler or on twitter @HighHeeldTravlr while she continues to cover the gallery scene and artist spotlights for ArtSee!
And last but not least…
Kayleigh Bryant, our art history enthusiast, will bring you the intersections between art and history in the DC art scene. She is a D.C. native, a young fine artist and frequent D.C. gallery and museum visitor. Her lifelong fascination with art and its place in our lives has moved her to explore the themes; techniques and media artists have employed to express their ideas from ancient to contemporary times. She believes Oscar Wilde got it right when he wrote: “Life imitates Art far more than Art imitates Life.” She has studied the visual and fine arts, art history, and exhibition design and conceptualization. Kayleigh has received a Master of Arts degree in Museum Studies from The George Washington University and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from the University of Maryland, College Park.

Bringing the Art in DC to You,
Elizabeth (and the entire ArtSee team…)
