Hello and welcome!
My name is Rachael Lemon,
an artist, illustrator, wife and mother to four children.
I grew up in Hampshire in the south of England. After graduating from the University of Portsmouth with an Honours Degree in Illustration, I have spent over 10 years teaching art and design to students in Singapore and Southampton, England and living in the City of Rockingham, Western Australia loving life, practicing my art, ever grateful to be given the opportunity to share my passion for visual arts striving to encourage all ages and abilities within the community to cultivate their creative spirit.
Rachael's art making
Rachael has had a very successful year winning the Water Corporation Sustainability Award at Rockingham Castaways Awards 2022. The sculpture, 'Fanciful Floral Flurry', was a collaboration piece with Sharon Baxter to create a statement about the throwaway culture we live in, utilising house hold plastics that would ordinarily head to landfill.
In previous years Rachael has participated in several creative, community art projects which include assisting the Baldivis Brumby Girl Guides and the students from Ridge View Secondary College’s art club with the design, development, and creation of entries to the annual Rockingham Castaways Competition.
Rachael also took part in the Perth Arts Festival in 2018 along with 36 other artists, designing and painting life-sized dolphins for The Big Splash event as part of Perth Children’s Hospital Foundation efforts to raise mental health awareness in youth.
In both 2017 and 2018 Rachael’s paintings were selected and displayed as part of the annual Rockingham Art Awards exhibition and most recently, her sculpture ‘Blooming Disordered Exchange’, consisting of a genderless, clay sculpted bust was featured on the front cover and inside the MSWA quarterly publication.
I'm always looking for new and exciting opportunities.
