Meet Rachel

Hi! I’m Rachel Pappas. I grew up in Northern California across the street from a field of wild mustard and oxalis, which is probably why my favorite color is yellow and I love a good flower crown!
Since childhood, I’ve absolutely loved creating! That passion evolved into a Fine Arts degree, living abroad for artistic inspiration, becoming a Display Coordinator for Anthropologie, and collaborating with people who loved my work and recruited me for individual and corporate projects. My heart is full of gratitude for those who made these experiences possible.
Living now in New England with my husband, I so appreciate discovering here how current styles can mix unexpectedly with charming vintage goods, and how skillful hand-crafting uplifts the combination into a unique presentation.

I Love…

bringing nature indoors – an organic touch can completely transform a space!

exploring creative use of textiles.

repurposing cherished or newly found objects into useful art.

These are just a few of my favorites. And I can’t wait to help YOU weave your favorites into something unforgettable!  This is why I started The Woven Canvas – to turn your event, your brand, your environment into a reflection of your vision, aspirations and inspirations.

I hope you enjoy exploring our website – thank you so much for taking the time to stop by!
