Rachel Mari Simkover (b. 1989, Berkeley, CA, USA) is a Japanese-Jewish visual artist currently residing in Sydney, Australia. She studied painting and printmaking at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York and Goldsmiths University of London. Her interest in artists' books lead to a self-publishing project under the moniker Book Hook Editions, participating in book fairs such as the Artist Self Publishing Fair in London and the Printed Matter Art Book Fair in Los Angeles. Working professionally as an interior design materials specialist redirected her art practice towards textiles and hand weaving. Her work explores the desire to find personal freedom within inevitable restrictions and retain curiosity in the pursuit of beauty.
