Rachel Howell | Artist
Growing up in Launceston, Rachel has always been in awe of the natural beauty of Tasmania. From a young age Rachel had the privilege of joining her father, Norton Harvey, a passionate bushwalker and photographer, on many of his adventures trekking to some of Tasmania's remote places. Memories and photographs from these trips are still used today to help inspire some of Rachel's artwork.
Now a retired school teacher, Rachel spends as much time as possible painting in her studio at Rosevears. Rachel paints in a diverse range of mediums, including, but not limited to: oil, pastel and water colour.
Rachel has won numerous art awards, these include, but are not limited to: Finalist and Hangers Choice Glover Art Prize 2016, Finalist Bay of Fires Art Prize 2016 and winner of 'Meandering' Aquistive Award 2011. She is also an active member of Launceston Art Society.
