Rachel Doller is a mixed media artist based in Fremantle, Western Australia. With bold use of shape, texture and colour, Rachel’s works are abstract with a strong graphic feel.
From considered compositions to experimental arrangements, Rachel aims to investigate the relationships between the visual elements of shape, texture and colour, and show how natural textures, man-made surfaces and geometric shapes can work harmoniously together.
Rachel’s artworks feature a variety of media including acrylic paint, cut paper, digital print, photography and printmaking. She is inspired by her surrounds: the beach, the bush and our urban landscape.
Rachel graduated with a Bachelor of Design (Graphic Design) from RMIT in 2000 and has worked as a Graphic Designer in Melbourne, Edinburgh & Perth for over 15 years.
When Rachel and her husband moved to Perth in 2014 she returned to her visual art practice and has found a true connection to not only her environment but to the local community.
