CONNECT WITH RACHEL
Currently living in Queensland, Australia, Rachel is a practicing artist and art teacher of 20 years. She graduated with a BFA in Illustration and a Bachelor in Secondary Education in 2000.
Rachel’s distinctive Pop – surreal style has been showcased in galleries across the U.S, Portugal, New Zealand and Australia. In 2019 she had her first solo international show with Curly Tale Gallery in Chicago titled, ‘Out of the Velvet Blackness’ which examined the demise of childhood creativity as they traverse into adulthood.
With a background in Illustration and in collaboration with her husband, who is also an artist and art teacher, Rachel delved into the world of children’s book illustration in 2018 with her first picture book, ‘The Bear Hug’, a story about a young bear whose mischievous nature gets her into trouble.
At the heart of Rachel’s art practice she believes that everyone has the potential to be creative.
“Dreaming begins in the dark recesses of our childhood imagination. We just need to dig away adult logic to reveal what was there all along; creativity.”
