Rachel Thadal is self-representing artist working with mixed media & resin. She is best known for her paintings of elegant women wearing hats and also for her modern abstract works.
What stands out about her contemporary artworks is their warm colors, their captivating lines and provocative contrast. She associates textures and elements such as fabric and jewelry to create stunning pieces.
“I paint following my intuition and my emotions of the moment, while being opened to the unexpected,” says the artist whose feminine paintings illustrate the poetry book (the Hidden Glory Poured Out) of the writer Naedj Joseph, published in 2012, in Virginia.
Born in Haiti, Rachel lived and studied medicine in Cuba before settling in Québec (Canada) where she currently lives with her husband and two daughters.
Rachel Thadal is amongst Haiti’s greatest women artists and women artists with promising talents in the book “Présence féminine dans l’art haïtien” of the historian Marie Alice Théard, published in 2013.

In 2015, I quit my job to pursue my dream of becoming an artist and entrepreneur full time. Today, needless to say that I love what I do. I am living “the dream” and I find the experience amazing.
I am not loyal to a theme (I juggle between abstract art and portraits of women) but rather to a style. A modern style that I have developed over 10 years and that has allowed my art to stand out.
My current paintings are representative of my environment (past and present). I am inspired by everything that intrigues me and that creates a spark in me. I capitalizes on the positive side of things and it transpires in my art.
