Irish Artist Rachel Dubber
A West Coast of Ireland Galway girl, I was born with a passion for horses, animals and nature. I spent all my holidays and spare time growing up on my grandparents’ farm in the beautiful Connemara countryside, fuelling a young girl’s love for nature and animals into the rewarding life and career choice as a professional artist today.
I come from a very creative family and started my artistic learning at a very young age, it was always nurtured and encouraged, but it took a back seat for a number of years while I traveled the world to work full time with horses. My artistic side was to flourish again when I returned to Ireland and went to college to complete an Honours Degree in Fine Art. It was then that things fell into place and I could combine my passion for animals and art to create beautiful unique paintings and drawings that capture the physical, emotional and spiritual traits of animals.
“If you love horses, animals and art then you will feel right at home here”.
What mediums do I specialize in?
I specialize in oils and graphite drawings, capturing the character, beauty and soul of your beloved pet, using only the highest quality materials. Oil paintings are on gallery quality canvas and drawings on Acid Free Archival paper ensuring the longevity of your artworks.
What do I need in order to create an artwork?
I work from single or multiple photographs, which allows me to accurately capture and create a true physical and emotional likeness with great attention to detail.
Who needs a customized artwork and why?
A customize painting or drawing makes an extremely unique, personal and thoughtful gift. It is ideal for a Birthday, Christmas Present or any special occasion. You are making an investment into a unique piece of art that adorns pride of place in your home; it brings beauty, comfort, joy, fond memories and nature into your home.
Living my dream creating art
My love for horses, animals and art have slowly evolved side by side over the past few years and as a professional artist I share my passion through the unique art I create for my clients. A working background with horses and animals provides me with a detailed physical and anatomical understanding of subjects, while my experience as a rider, pet owner and artist enables me to to create works of art that portray my subjects in all their beauty, grace and power. My style and technique are unique to me and allow me to express the personality, physical anatomy, movement and spirit of my subject. I immortalize the spirit, grace, physique, power and gentle nature of animals in my evocative, passionate and tangible oil paintings and graphite drawings so you to can enjoy them forever in your home.
“The Ten years in the horse racing industry was the highlight of my career working with horses, having met and worked alongside legendary jockeys such as Lester Piggott, Willie Carson and Frankie Dettori; working in the Olympic Showjumping Yard of Graziano Mancinelli and Raimondo D’Inzeo in Milan for a few years was also a wonderful experience.”
