In 2014, with her children "coming of age", Rachel allowed herself to refocus her energy to the arts, traveling through art fairs around the world, managing galleries and dealing art.
Keeping with her exceptional ability to accept, evolve and adjust with change, Meijler found her role within the “New Art World”, post the effects of E-Commerce.
