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 Madame Anne-Marie Volodos in LePeq, Yvelines, a small village west of Paris, and this kick started her entry into the art world. Upon her return stateside in 2005, Rochelle Dammel continued her art studies with seasoned abstract artist and long-time mentor Michael Ottersen at the Kirkland Art Center in Kirkland, Washington. Her move to Colorado in 2011 allowed her to expand her exposure to abstract and figurative work by studying with artists Karen Roehl, Jordan Wolfson, and Diane Rapissi.
Rochelle Dammel holds a BA in Communications/Advertising from the University of Washington. A native of Washington state, she now calls Colorado her home.
