Rachel Rush

Rachel was born on the North Shore of Auckland and discovered a passion for art while at high school.  A self-taught artist, Rachel started painting in the early 1990s.  Around 2009 she started painting full time. Originally painting landscapes in oil, in the last few years she has moved into acrylics.

Rachel says, “I love the freedom of mixing up acrylics with resins, there are no hard rules to follow and I love watching each piece take on its own vibrancy and energy.”

Influences for my art change regularly – as I enjoy painting both landscape and abstract, almost anything can grab my attention and begin to feed into new ideas.


Examples of Rachel’s artwork can be seen at Mobile Art Gallery, 23 Edwin Street, Mt Eden.
