Vibrant and compelling paintings in a unique and distinctive style....
Rachel enjoys capturing the beauty and character of her environment. Her paintings are always uplifting and often depict the beautiful New Zealand coastline in summer. The ever-changing sea and sky, bush clad hills, character seaside baches and caravans, old dinghies and pohutukawas are among some of her favourite subjects. Featuring in particular is the east coast of the Coromandel Peninsula which is her home.
Rachel's best known works have a unique 'Kiwi' flavour, and evoke a warm sense of nostalgia and playful wonder, often reminding us of times and places close to our hearts. A good understanding of light, colour, balance and line, combined with a natural ability to draw and compose has given her paintings wide appeal.
Visitors are welcome to come to my home studio!
I prefer to have a little prior notice, but you can still contact me on the day and
so long as I'm home it's usually fine to come within a few hours to view
my artwork, or discuss your ideas for a commission work.
I enjoy meeting art lovers of all types (and there is no pressure to buy!)
We are now located on an avocado orchard a short drive
up behind Flaxmill Bay near Cooks Beach.
Please call, text or email for directions and to arrange a suitable time.
If you are in Whitianga and would like to come over on the ferry, I may be able to
collect you and take you back after your studio visit.
