Rochelle Dammel  is driven by the freeing process of combining colors and moving and mixing paint. A believer that making art is the act of intuitively solving a series of problems, she uses her training and experience to create art that offers multiple interpretations.  

While living in France between 2003-2005,  Rochelle Dammel studied a variety of mediums with artist Madame Anne-Marie Volodos in LePeq, Yvelines, a small village west of Paris. She also traveled to the south of France to study pastels.  Upon her return stateside in 2005, Rochelle Dammel's  began studying abstract with seasoned abstract artist and mentor Michael Ottersen  at the Kirkland Art Center in Kirkland, Washington.  She continued her journey after her move to Colorado in 2011 with studies that included abstract with Karen Roehl and the figure with Jordan Wolfson, Diane Rapissi and Stephen Perkins. 

Rochelle Dammel holds a BA in Communications/Advertising from the University of Washington, and writes real estate marketing pieces when not creating art or watching baseball, her favorite sport.   A native of Washington state, she now calls Colorado her home.
