Endemic to New Zealand the tuatara is a fascinating creature - blurring the line between modern-day and the age of the dinosaur.
Rachel Walker has captured this fascinating creature in a limited edition print. The bulk of the tuatara is made up of fine dots and lines while violet splashes of watercolour soften the work.
'Violet Eyed Tuatara' has been signed, named and numbered by the artist.
Edition Size: 100
Dimensions: 450mm (w) x 290mm (h)
Napier born artist Rachel Walker (aka Walkerillo) can count living and painting in rural France and London, designing illustrations for the Royal New Zealand ballet, and taking tea in Bilbo Baggin's kitchen among the highlights of her career so far.
Rachel graduated from Massey University in 2008, coming away with a design degree. While her degree leads her into a career in graphic and textile design it wasn't long before long she returned to her childhood love of hand-drawn illustrations.
Currently painting within the theme of animals, extinction and evolution Rachel works mainly in watercolour, ink and stencilled spray paint.
