Rachael Flynn lives on a cattle and sheep farm in a locality called
Piambong, about 25kms north-west of Mudgee NSW, with her husband Mick,
and their 2 boys, James and Paddy.
She's always had an interest in art and creating things. Originally she
was a Visual Arts teacher, but left teaching in 1998 to spend more time
with her little boys. She painted a few farm pics back in 2000, and had
some images reproduced onto greeting cards for the local markets.
'Rachael Flynn Art' developed into the name, 'red tractor designs'.
Originally, her artwork was depicted scenes of farm life, such as a wheat
harvest, shearing, and mustering stock, all painted on board or paper
with a fine brush. In recent times, the RTD images are more 'character
based', and are created by digital enhancement of original work, which
allows her to produce a greater variety of work, and give characters a
more 'consistent' look.
She loves our beautiful Australian birds, drinking loose leaf tea, dogs,
fair weather gardening, cooking, music (from Classical to Country) and is
a bit of a home-body.
