Rachael is an award-winning Noosa artist whose artworks range from alluring soft pastel landscapes to coloured pencil, expressive and sweet animal artworks. She enjoys the fine detail of pencil and the range of tones that watercolour can bring forth in both botanic and animal artworks.
Having worked with animals for many years, her animal artworks focus on anatomical strengths as well emotive personality. Rachael has a stall at the Eumundi markets where she can be seen creating her artworks Wednesdays and Saturdays. She also enjoys giving lessons at the local primary school.
‘When I am drawing or painting the boundaries of time stop. There are no deadlines, there is no rush. I am there, and I am creating and every now and then I get that thrill to look down and see what is coming out of my pencils – it is as though the art is breathing life into itself’.
