Rachael Robertson is an author, illustrator and primary school art teacher based in Perth/Boorlo. Her first book, My Amazing Animal Alphabet Alliteration Book is a fun, bright way to learn the alphabet. What Is It? is Rachael’s first book as an illustrator. Rachael predominately uses painted paper collage, but loves experimenting with any type of medium to create bright, textured works of art.
Rachael is an art teacher who loves educating and inspiring the next generation of artists to develop the freedom and skills to create. She lives with her husband and two daughters, Poppy and Daisy who are her little muses. Her girls inspire her daily and she has been known to paint too many poppies and daisies, or include them in everything.
Rachael ran a small floral business creating flower crowns for hens parties, weddings or engagements. She gave that up after the arrival of Poppy and decided to stick with painting. Rachael has sold her artwork in shops and galleries and loves the freedom to create both books and artworks. Having a book with her name on it as the author and illustrator has been her single greatest dream and she is forever grateful that she gets to do that.
