Rachael Levine is the daughter of writer and poet Norman Levine. Her early work is noted for its naive figurative shapes and brilliant colour ways, and more recently explores complex synaesthesic images both in colour and black and white. Her complex weaving of lines and colour are relatively small and intense in nature, deriving from long walks and inspiration from the natural world in all its tangle and undergrowth.
Rachael was born in Brighton, Sussex in 1957 and came to live with her family in St Ives in 1959. She set up her first studio in St Ives in 1985 and in 1989 moved into her current studio in the Penwith Gallery complex. Between 1995 and 2001 she had four solo shows at the Plumbline Gallery, St Ives and exhibited at the Rainyday Gallery in Penzance. A large selection of her works were exhibited in the NAGs 'Obsession' exhibition in 2001.
