JAY NELSON & RACHEL KAYE

Artists, San Francisco

Jay Nelson and Rachel Kaye are married artists living in San Francisco who balance their lives between raising two children and pursuing their creative endeavors. Jay is an architect-artist-surfer who crafts treehouses and mobile structures and creates paintings that explore light and space. Rachel is known for her bold, joyous paintings that are filled with swirling lines and patterns. Working from a studio Nelson built in their backyard, the couple occasionally collaborate and exhibit individually

“Both the treehouse and camper were my home, so I was building things that made sense and that I needed.” - Jay

""The Bay Area has in some way
pushed me in the direction I'm in
now. I guess I feel like my work fits
in a Northern California culture."
- Jay

I’m happiest when I’m working on something.
When you have kids, that feeling is even stronger
because you have little eyes watching you.
You want to show them what’s possible,
that play, process, mistakes can be work.”
- Rachel

“Dream exhibition, dream home, dream year living abroad. Just steadily working towards those things.”- Rachel
