ARTWORK DESCRIPTION:

Rachael’s graphite drawing “Predators of the Sea” shows the incredible power and beauty of four orca whales travelling to their hunting grounds as a family unit. Rachael says her inspiration came from the Southern Resident Killer Whales of the Eastern Pacific Ocean. The species was listed as endangered in 2005 – originally their population was estimated to be approximately 200 whales but now that number stands at only 85 whales.

ARTIST BIOGRAPHY:

Rachael Robinson has been an artist since March 2020 when she accidentally fell into drawing whilst taking care of her 6-week-old baby and going through the first lockdown. Soon after delivery Robinson suffered from post-natal depression and anxiety. Drawing became her escape from the world’s harsh new environment and helped her to be a good mum to her daughter. Before this she was a zookeeper for 6 years and, whilst Rachael lost her identity for a while, she now feels she has a brand new one as an artist!
