Rachel Sutherland


Rachel’s work is largely a record of her observations in many lands over the years, being well travelled, rendered in pen, ink and water colour.

More recently settled in Belgium, she is painting landscapes and portraits on canvas. In any work she strives to illustrate it’s ‘essence’, a nebulous concept based on contemplation of the object under study.

Rachel’s work has two distinct avenues: abstract and figurative. A keen observer of life, she draws fluently and this has been developed through the use of oil pastel studies and a series of landscape paintings. Her abstract work is a celebration of, really, the Indian miniature, of colour and composition.

“I believe that life gives me all I need. All I need to do is look, either outside, or inside, the inspiration is a constant joy.”


(editors note: I love that Rachel accidentially sent me a picture of her cat, so included it here)
