Rachel Tighe is an Urban Landscape Artist based in the Midlands. She graduated from University with a First Class Degree in Fine Art in 2008 and has, since then, been developing her process and creating new work. Initally her subject matter focused on drawing street scenes and cityscapes, in order to do this she has travelled to many places for inspiration and to keep variety in the Architecture within her work; this has taken her to places such as Canada, Barcelona, Venice, London and New York. Recently she has been drawn to nature that surrounds her and now paints florals alongside her popular cityscapes.
Rachel exhibits her work around the UK and is represented by several respectable galleries, her work is also seen at Affordable Arts fairs up and down the country.
“The practise of my work involves capturing life and the architecture around us through the fast paced marks I make on paper. I then develop these images onto canvas and the illogical representations begin to take form and create naïve paintings which are full of movement and life”
