Isabel Rucker is a multi-disciplinary artist and a professional metalsmith.
In 2017 she has been reacting through American politics through a new body of work, Snowflake in Chief. In this work she combines sculptural and performance art using Cheetos and video production. In February she filmed one of these works while attending an artist residency at the Jentel Foundation where she spent the month continuing her large-scale watercolor and gouache abstract paintings.
Past work includes a public sculpture on the main street of the town of Pinedale, Wyoming, Quartz, Mica, Feldspar, a 450′ x 12″ graphic novel Unfurling, and daily metalwork projects in the jewelry studio as well as owning an art gallery from 2010-2016. She continues to operate Isabel Jewelry, her jewelry business.
Isabel comes from a family of artists, teachers and philosophers. She has lived in Wyoming since 2003 and has lived and grown up in the San Francisco Bay Area, Oregon, France, Virginia, Germany and New York. She loves to expand her mind through travel, museums, and the great outdoors. She attended University of Oregon and received a Bachelor’s of Arts, Fine Arts and is currently working towards becoming a Graduate Gemologist through Gemological Institute of America.
