Getting Ready With Rachel Harris & Her Girl Gang


Rachel Harris is an abstract expressionistic artist based in Downtown Los Angeles. An industrious painter, and skilled in design, Rachel utilizes raw construction material to produce textured, large-scale works that vary in motif while retaining their form. Still growing and testing her limits, Rachel’s work is a therapeutic process of self-expression. As a model, her unabashed vulnerability in front of the camera—often alongside her pieces—is a demure challenge to traditional assumptions of who an artist is, and what an artist does. Rachel takes the night off of work to enjoy her birthday, and photographer Anthony Williams captures a few snaps while he gets ready with her best girlfriends in a rockstar wife’s closet. This photo series shows an intimate view of the love she has for the ones closest.


“My birthday was comprised of 3 parts. The beginning of the day started on a yacht where I hosted 20 beautiful girls. The second half was spent with a few good friends in the hills, getting ready for the night with a home cooked meal and some treats. This intimate part of the day I hold closest, and the photos capture it perfectly. I ended my night at local, favorite, skate bar, BLACK. It was a perfect example of the many hats I wear actually; model, artist, and LA degenerate.”

A Midweek Meditation on Zadie Smith’s Literary Brilliance, Michelle Obama’s Grace and Common’s Never-ending Creativity

This week, I’m leaning into love. Love for literature and one of its most brilliant minds. Love for our First Lady who feels like family instead of political royalty. Love for Common, a man whose trademark creative impulse shines on an unofficial remix of “Cranes in the Sky.”
