Rachael Mayne

Rachael Mayne is an artist based in Auckland, New Zealand and is known for her large, impressionistic floral paintings. Rachael is a self-taught artist and is from a family of artists and art-teachers. Since a young age, painting has always been an essential part of her existence. As a painter and clinical psychologist, Rachael is fascinated by the inter-relationship between art, creativity, and wellbeing. Painting is a therapeutic process for Rachael and a space for self-expression, exploration and reflection. For Rachael, art conveys ideas and concepts in a way that words canā€™t capture. Rachael portrays emotion and feeling through the movement of fluid brush strokes and the use of bold colour;Ā sereneĀ landscapes, bright cheerful daisy fields,Ā andĀ dark tangled gardens. Rachael draws inspiration from the colours and forms surrounding her in New Zealandā€™s extraordinary landscapes. Using careful layering and contrasting colour, Rachael aims to evoke a sense of depth and realism to her paintings. Paint is applied in a thick and gestural manner with the aim of creating texture and movement to heighten the sensation of being able to ā€˜step right inā€™ and immerse oneself into the scene.
