Bio

Artist Profile

Blurry Forest

ChazownCreative:

Rachel Williamson began her artistic journey at a young age, often found huddled on a couch sketching away. She studied English and Art History at Wilfrid Laurier University in Canada and trained as a Secondary Teacher. After moving to Australia in 2005 and later starting a family, Rachel continued to explore her creativity, finding her painting and writing niche as an creative outlet, to encourage others and spread joy.

 

Rachel Williamson is primarily self-taught and has her own approach to - and definition of - Art. She believes that inspiration can be found wherever we look - architecture, nature, children and more'. In 2023 Rachel refined her work further by zeroing on her mission statement- Back to Basics: The ART of slow living.

The ART of slow living:

As Rachel Williamson continued to evolve in her work, she realized her passion for a different way of living became her focus:  a life focusing on balance and all-encompassing welfare. She is passionate about living from a lifestyle of rest and joy, and her art work flows from this way of thinking. She believes that life is busy enough and so we should be mindful in moment, taking notice of the little sparks that bring happiness. She believes we grow by being in community with each other, being in nature, and finding purpose that our gifts can bring the world.

'Back to Basics: The art of living slowly'; was realizing that she wanted her work to express a mindful, faith-focused perspective, by living purposefully and pursuing peace. She attempts to practice slow living, meaning intentionally living life in a slower pace, with a holistic and relaxed approach. She hopes this is expressed in her body of work.
