Rachael Flynn lives on a cattle and sheep farm in a locality called Piambong, about 25kms north-west of Mudgee NSW, with her husband Mick, and their 2 boys, James and Paddy.
She's always had an interest in art and creating things. Originally she was a Visual Arts teacher, but left teaching in 1998 to spend more time with her little boys. She painted a few farm pics back in 2000, and had some images reproduced onto greeting cards for the local markets. 'Rachael Flynn Art' developed into the name, 'red tractor designs'.
Originally, her artwork was depicted scenes of farm life, such as a wheat harvest, shearing, and mustering stock, all painted on board or paper with a fine brush. In recent times, the RTD images are more 'character based', and are created by digital enhancement of original work, which allows her to produce a greater variety of work, and give characters a more 'consistent' look.
She loves our beautiful Australian birds, drinking loose leaf tea, dogs, fair weather gardening, cooking, music (from Classical to Country) and is a bit of a home-body.
