By OperaHippy is the collective works of Rachel Blair. Rachel is an accomplished musician, having graduated from the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music at CSU Long Beach in 2014 with a degree in Operatic Performance. Long before her studies of music, Rachel was a student of observation, and a creator by necessity. She began writing poetry and songs before she could properly write or record them. She was drawn to hands-on projects and crafts. At the age of 9, she began sewing, quilting, knitting and crochet.
After graduating, Rachel extended her focus back to writing and and fiber arts, and began studying metaphysics and psychology. This new study, and the need to create, drove her to making jewelry with the stones and crystals of the earth. Soon. STONED was born. Since then, Rachel has gone back to working with crochet and developed another line, HOOKED.
Now, By OperaHippy is a multi-medium exhibit of Rachel Blair’s various mediums, and it continues to grow.
