Who: Rachel Walker
What: Watercolour artist specialising in native birds and creatures.
Where: New Zealand - based in Wellington.
Why: I discovered Rachel's work while visiting various galleries and art shows around New Zealand. Her distinct work kept popping up and I couldn't take my eyes off of it. So much motion, energy and attention to detail. I love the combination of the ink to add those little bits of detail not necessarily obtainable solely with watercolours. Hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I do.
