Rachel Spitzer-Firliet, of Proctor, is an artist-in-residence this month at 77ART in Rutland. When Talking Pictures asked her what deciding factor in her life prompted her to become an artist, Spitzer-Firliet said, “I don’t ever recall not wanting to be one, to be honest with you.” Now, as an adult, she says the work is almost obsessive. She said, “I can’t not do it. It’s just an internal drive. It’s calming. It’s meditative. Some people have exercise and other things they can do that shut their brain off. Art is like that for me.”
