Rachel Rosenkrantz is a French luthier based in Providence, Rhode Island, who spent a number of years playing music and developing architectural-design products. Born and raised in Montfermeil, France, Rachel studied Design at l’ESAG, in Paris as well as at RISD in Providence, where she was exposed to both fine arts and applied arts. Her understanding of construction through her industrial design years as well as her knowledge of music are two strong assets forming a stable backbone to her actual art-making of string instruments. Rachel is also a professor, teaching Spatial Dynamics at RISD in the Experimental and Foundation Studies Division. Just like her music and her designs, Rachel works her luthiery by exploring the combination of both traditional and new styles and techniques and tries to bring a unique perspective to her work with a strong focus on sustainability and innovation. Rachel is locally involved with the Rhode Island music community and is an active beekeeper.
