Rachel Gillam is a Western Australian artist living in the foothills of Perth, who has always had a strong need to be creative and hence art is just a natural form of expression and a way of life.
Rachel's preferred mediums are acrylics and sometimes incorporating mixed media such as oils, ink, pastel, and collage. Acrylic paint lets her work spontaneously and allows her to create while the inspiration is fresh. She paints intuitively, playing with the movement of paint on the canvas and lets the painting tell her what to do. Rachel's paintings are detailed with colour, layers and space resulting in her interpretation of experiences, emotions and places.
"It is my wish to create and contribute to a space where you the observer, can go elsewhere and allow your mind's eye to form your own reality. My paintings unite what is recognisable not by the identity or title of its subject matter, instead by the emotions and familiar interaction felt in their stories".
Rachel’s work is included in private collections in Australia and overseas.
