CURRICULUM VITAE

22/04/08

MY NAME IS RACHEL SAVAGE AND I AM A SCOTTISH ARTIST, LIVING AND PAINTING FROM MY HOME STUDIO IN MORLEY, SOUTH LEEDS. I HAVE LIVED IN LEEDS SINCE 1999 WHEN I GRADUATED FROM CUMBRIA INSTITUTE OF THE ARTS WITH MY DEGREE IN FINE ART PAINTING.

I LIVE WITH MY HUSBAND ANTON, TWO BOYS SETH AND WILF AND AN EVER EXPANDING FAMILY OF ANIMALS INCLUDING A BORDER TERRIER (NOODLE) A YELLOW DUTCH RABBIT (POLLY) MINI OTTER REX RABBIT (DAVE) AND 2 GUINEA PIGS BASIL AND BIG FRANK.

I FIND BOTH ANIMALS AND ALL 4 CORNERS OF THE UK A GREAT SOURCE OF INSPIRATION FOR MY ARTWORK.

INSPIRATION COMES FROM THE MOUNTAINS OF THE LAKE DISTRICT AND THE HIGHLANDS OF SCOTLAND AND STRETCHES AROUND TO THE SKIES OF THE BRITISH COASTLINE AND THE TRANQUILITY BENEATH THE OCEAN.I AM CONSTANTLY ENTHUSED WITH A NEED TO EXPLORE THESE EXCITING AND TRANISENT ENVIRONMENTS IN THE MOST APPROPRIATE AND FULLFILLING WAY THAT I KNOW... THROUGH PAINTING, ALWAYS IN OIL PAINT ON CANVAS.

I ALSO PAINT ANIMAL PORTRAITS ON REQUEST WHICH I HAVE BEEN DOING FOR THE PAST FEW YEARS AND MORE RECENTLY INCORPORATING ANIMALS AND BIRDS INTK MY LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS

YOU CAN FIND ME ON FACEBOOK AND ALSO INSTAGRAM. BOTH ARE UPDATED REGULARLY INCLUDING WORKS IN PROGRESS AND COMMISSIONS I AM WORKING ON

PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO GET IN TOUCH IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN BEING KEPT UP TO DATE WITH NEW WORKS AND EXHIBITIONS, TO PURCHASE A PIECE OF ART OR REQUEST A COMMISSION.
