About Rachel Kroh
Owner, Designer, Printer
Rachel Kroh thinks the most flattering thing anyone ever said about her work was when the art critic Jerry Saltz described it as “radically sincere.” Kroh was born in Oak Park, Illinois and raised in the foothills of Salt Lake City, Utah. She holds a Bachelor of Arts from Sarah Lawrence College, a Master of Fine Arts in Printmedia from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and a Master of Arts and Religion from Yale Divinity School. Before founding Heartell Press in 2014, Kroh exhibited her sculpture, paintings and prints in galleries in Chicago and New York. She was co-founder of the progressive dinner church St. Lydia’s in Brooklyn, NY and Executive Director of the nonprofit organization Music that Makes Community. After seven wonderful years of food coop membership, community garden building and committed pizza and bagel consumption in Brooklyn, NY, Kroh relocated in September 2016 to Fort Wayne, Indiana. She is enjoying the close proximity to family, the abundant space for inventory and letterpress equipment and the plentiful peace and quiet of the midwest.
