''Rachel is an absolute visionary. We have now commissioned Rachel to paint four pieces and they've all been absolutely exquisite and unique. The first time we gave Rachel a photo of some flowers we adored, and she delivered "sunshine and happiness" which truly brings sunshine on the brightest and darkest of days. The second time, we commissioned a three-part series called "places we've lived". Rachel was able to weave in her fluid style with our childhood homes, our kittens and spaces and places that are special to us. Every time we look at the piece, we find something else we've never seen before. I would 1000% recommend Rachel to anyone who is looking for a special piece for themselves or family or friends. We've trusted Rachel with the process every time and been beyond thrilled with the outcome.''
One of a kind
''If you are looking for a one of kind bespoke piece of art to brighten up your space then you are 100% in the right place. It was a breeze working with Rachel on a special piece to gift to our mother for Christmas. The cost was given upfront, we collaborated on the brief for the piece, progress pictures were shared and all feedback taken onboard. It is now a treasured centrepiece in the living room and it was a pleasure to support a local artist.''
All too easy!
''We are so stoked with our Rachel Barber piece. Going out on a limb to organise a surprise present for my wife without any knowledge on artwork. Working with Rachel was so simple, easily being able to translate my poorly described vision, into a reality on a canvas that we are absolutely chuffed with. Not only that, she was so open minded on revisions (not that we needed much) and the logistics of getting the awesome artwork to the South Island was great. I’m not usually one to go out a limb like this but working with Rachel made it all too easy! Big result and awesome to look at hanging up. Cheers!''
Guided us through
''We knew we wanted an island theme painting but we didn't know what that looked like. The end product is better than we ever could have imagined. The references we provided have been perfectly intertwined with Rachel's signature artistic look. Rachel guided us through the entire process - she outlined what she needed and kept us in the loop each step of the way. The transparency and collaboration has made this project fun and stress free. Would highly recommend Rachel's work!''
