Bio

Rachel Blythe Udell is inspired by the ways that yarn, fabric, clothing, and other materials can be used to inform texture, shape, and fluidity, and to evoke emotions that are sometimes difficult to put into words. In 2014, she exhibited her work in a solo show, The Shapes of My Dreams and of My Nightmares, at Grounds For Sculpture in Hamilton, New Jersey.  Recently, Udell was chosen to exhibit her work in Outside/Inside the Box as part of the international biennial, FiberPhiladelphia.  In addition, she was invited by the Philadelphia Dept. of Parks and Recreation to create a fiber art installation at Lemon Hill Mansion in Fairmount Park. Her work has also been shown at numerous venues in Philadelphia such as The Painted Bride Art Center, Nichols Berg Gallery, and International House Philadelphia as well as the Bronx Art Space and et al Projects in New York City. Udell graduated from the University of Pennsylvania summa cum laude with a bachelor’s degree in Art History.  She lives and works in Collingswood, NJ.
