Local Artist Balances Motherhood and Career in Salisbury

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, Md.- The National Folk Festival in Salisbury celebrates artists from all over, including here at home.

One of those artists is Salisbury native Rachel Alvarez, who runs a business, and a house of kids.

Alvarez started her paint business about five years ago, from her home. While running a household and a business can get hectic, she is fully prepared for the festival this weekend. 
"A big seller from my booth last year is the state stickers that I do. I have 12 different Maryland state scenes and those are a big hit." says Alvarez.
While she specializes in painting Maryland views, Alvarez says people from all over the country buy her paintings.
"I do fulfill orders in Salisbury and I love to work with local clients however that's not the majority of the people that I sell to," she said. "A great deal of my body of work celebrates this area. The cool thing about that is people from all over the country enjoy it too."
Alvarez will be one of the few water-color painters at the festival. To view more of her work visit rachelalvarezart.com
