Design Press The Unwinding Chrysalis

A student, wife and mother Rachel Watson has also been a consummate paper artist, photographer, and advocate for her children's well being for most of her life.


Born and raised in northern Indiana she dreamed of being a pediatrician a writer of children's books and a physical therapist. These youthful callings changed after marriage and raising a family. While chaperoning a field trip with her twin sons she discovered graphic design, and enrolled on a design program at her local community college.


After graduating, she knew that in order to be the designer she wanted to be she needed to find a program that would give a more well rounded conceptual base to her education. She is now attending art school in Seattle, WA, and finding her way around the ever constant load of home, family, homework, and life as a commuter.
