Rachel Sheree is an Australian born, world travelled artist currently based in Sydney.
Inspired by the natural world that surrounds us, Rachel’s work is reflective of a raw, organic styling. Working predominantly in the fields of ceramics and sculpture, Rachel will often incorporate found or natural materials in to her artworks. Whether it be sand in the glaze of a ceramic vase or paper bark glued to a bumper bar, much of Rachel’s work is experimental. As a side project Rachel also dabbles in photography with the majority of her pictures taken from her travels around the world.
Rachel studied a Bachelor of Fine Arts Studies at the University of Western Sydney before moving on to complete her Honours degree in Visual Arts – Object and Design at Sydney College of the Arts in association with the University of Sydney and is currently completing her Masters in Information Studies Librarianship online with Charles Sturt University. She has had a number of exhibitions and been involved in various art prizes across Sydney and London, including the Hidden Sculpture Walk at Rookwood in 2016 where she was the recipient of the Auburn Peacock Gallery Residency and Mentorship Award plus the People's Choice Award for artwork 'Peace in Death', the Blacktown City Art Prize in 2013 where Bumper Bark was Highly Commended in Sculpture, her first solo exhibition 'Spirit and Nature' at the Dragonlair Gallery of Hurstville Museum and Gallery in 2017 and the group exhibition 'Grounded Light' at The Brick Lane Gallery in London in 2012.
Rachel has become the young aspiring artist she is today thanks to her experiences as a traveller and love of the natural world. Her art is reflective of this, celebrating the wonders and beauty of nature in a man-made world.
