Based in South West Victoria, Rachel is curious about diversity - in the land, history and communities She also wonders about the sacredness in the ordinary. Her works are a way of processing life experiences, a visit to Cambodia or daily walks along the cliffs of Warrnambool. She blends colour, shadow and found objects in uniquely layered work, celebrating and forming a sense of place. Works may begin with a specific geographic place, community or moment in mind, then develops a visual story.
Rachel has exhibited around the state and shows her works in a number of galleries. Her website is www. tidalart.net
