As an avid traveler and outdoor enthusiast I am constantly in awe of the natural beauty that surrounds us each day. My inspiration comes from the things that I am drawn to and feel a connection with. My paintings are designed to evoke emotion, radiate contentment, and bring happiness. Working in oils has become my passion as I mix the thick creamy paint and apply it to the canvas with various size palette knives.
I want to take the viewer back to a special place and memory. In a world that sometimes feels bleak and dark, I have no greater joy than bringing a smile to a face and joy to the heart.
Born and raised in Calgary, AB. Rachelle Brady started drawing and painting from an early age using watercolour and acrylic. If there was a class or subject that delighted her the most it was always art.
Primarily self-taught, Rachelle has been a professional artist for over 10 years. Her luscious palette knife paintings reveal an artist who is passionate about the world around her as she captures the emotion and essence of life on canvas.
Rachelle works in oil using dynamic and bold marks, as she creates an original and exquisite body of work. Her landscapes and trees often reflect her favourite time of year, fall, which is evident in the bold use of yellows, oranges and reds.
She especially loves to work on large scale pieces. Rachelle’s work has a strong organic feel, her florals are imbued with light and texture using vivid colours with soft creams and whites.
