About Rachel Denny
Rachel Denny’s work is an exploration of the seductive beauty of our natural world and the imprint that human intervention has made on its flora and fauna.
Denny works in a variety of media and is inspired by the elegant forms found in the natural world and the time honored action of trying to depict these forms in a relevant way that is an homage to this beauty and wonder.
