Vibrant and compelling paintings in a unique
and distinctive style....
July 2023 - update
I am currently living in Hahei.
Recently I have been working on commission paintings
and also playing with some new experimental work.
Visitors are welcome to make a time to visit my home studio
to discuss commission ideas, view original paintings
and my limited edition print range and greeting cards.
Please make contact by email or phone in advance
to arrange a time that suits
and I'll let you know how to find me.
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 has been her home for over 30 years.
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.
