Rachel Arbuckle

Celtic Artist

Irish artist Rachel Arbuckle has always been fascinated by her Celtic heritage. Inspiration found in the intricate knotwork adorning the ancient manuscripts, stone and metalwork, coupled with Rachel´s love of a good story, have combined to produce some of the most popular images in contemporary Irish Celtic art. Mythological warriors rub shoulders with ancient historical figures and intertwine with animals, birds and fish rendered in the artist´s unique style. Her colours, although modern, emulate the softness of the natural pigments used by the Celts and a discerning eye will recognise shades of both Tuscany, where Rachel currently lives, and the Beara Peninsula, where she thrives on the rugged West Coast of Ireland.

Rachel graduated from Dublin´s National College of Art and Design in 1990. In 1991 her first designs were launched onto the Irish market. Today Rachel´s work are available worldwide, bringing a taste of Ireland to the four corners of the earth.
