    Rachel Favelle is a Pop Surreal artist and illustrator. Her work is inspired by the Australian flora and fauna that she encountered while growing up in the country. Her fantastical imaginings emerge in meticulously rendered oils paintings, drawings and sculptures that whisk viewers away to otherwordly places. Rachel's work highlights the beauty of nature and the importance of childhood imagination while also providing pressing commentary on wildlife conservation. 

    In her words: "My work exists in a space suspended between dreams and reality. I want to acknowledge the importance of childhood memories and imaginative play. Children have an instinctive curiosity when it comes to nature, I want people to revisit this experience in order to think more deeply about how they engage with their surroundings."

    With degrees in illustration and art education, Rachel has been an advocate for the art industry for the past twenty years. Career highlights include exhibiting with Beautiful Bizarre Magazine in their museum show, ‘Interconnected’ in 2022 and featuring in their publication that same year. Rachel's first international solo show opened in Chicago in 2019 and has participated in numerous exhibitions across Australia, Portugal, the United States and New Zealand. Award winning finalist in The Doyles Art Prize, Rachel has also been a repeat finalist in the Art Lovers Australia Art Prize, Lethbridge 20000 Small Scale Art Awards, the Border Art Prize and the Rotary Arts Spectacular.
