Day three of @sophiecallahan 's #jan19ruralbusiness challenge! This year, my goals include having a stand at a major event (Countryfile Live, or Badminton....?), finishing the work for a calendar, and finally cracking on with a very exciting commission! I want to solidify my brand too, and improve my social media and website! I'm also aiming to be braver with my work, to push what I'm capable of, and to be prouder of myself and what I've achieved. I also might get another horse but don't tell my other half. β€’ #jan19ruralbusiness #pencildrawing #britishwildlife #wildlife #drawing #art #hare #colouredpencil #2019 #2019goals

Once again, I am a day behind on a challenge, but here we go - @sophiecallahan 's #jan19ruralbusiness ! 1) I'm Rachel, and I am a pencil artists specialising in highly detailed drawings of animals, especially horses and British wildlife! I have been doing this seriously for about a two years now, and while it's been really hard work I'm really proud of what I've achieved. Pictured, myself and my long-suffering other half, Matt (@mat_kav )! 2) Reflecting on 2018, and while it feels like I didn't achieve a lot, I sold five originals, I did the most art shows ever, I made awesome internet art friends who are wonderful and supportive (looking at you, @kimberleydewhurstart ), and personally, I got married and got a puppy! So all in all, it was more than alright. β€’ #art #artist #30daychallenge #hello2019 #newyear #2018 #2018roundup

I'm busy packing an enormous amount of Christmas cards, designing my new fine china, and drinking too much hot chocolate, and it's all for the fairs I'm doing this year! I'm so excited to be returning to @cogges , their Christmas Market is always amazing (not to mention the mulled wine...), along with gorgeous markets at @hook_norton_brewery and @theblankethall πŸŽ„β„οΈπŸ·πŸŽ…πŸ» β€’ #christmas #cogges #witney #oxfordshire #hooknorton #hooknortonbrewery #christmasgifts #shoplocal
I *will* keep up with the prompts this time... this week is @justacard #indieweek campaign, and to start with, it's ten facts about me! 1. Horses are my number one, and I'm lucky enough to ride a cracking little Highland Pony called Ronni, who belongs to @hubbardequestrian 's mum! 2. I lived in New Zealand for four years, in Palmerston North and Wellington. 3. I have no formal art education, but I do have half a Biomedical Science degree and half a Law and International Relations degree... clearly finishing things wasn't a strong point a few years ago! 4. I got married this year, to the wonderful and long-suffering @mat_kav , who does my accounts and stock-take because I'm useless at it. 5. We added a corgi puppy called Dash to our family in September, and he's the best thing since sliced bread. 6. I love cold places, and my goal before I'm thirty is to visit the North Pole ❄️ 7. I'm afraid of monkeys and apes. 8. I am absolutely mad about Harry Potter, and know far too many useless facts. 9. I'm the same about Lord of the Rings, and my family won't watch it with me as I'm "too annoying". 10. My favourite dinosaur is Deinonychus! β€’ #justacard #supportsmallbusiness #shoplocal #indieweek #shopsmall #artist

The next in my Christmas card series - my favourite reindeer ever! Living a sedentary lifestyle and only an average of 65kg, does anyone know where in the world these little Rangifers live? 🦌🦌🦌 β€’ #reindeer #snow #deer #winter #christmas #wildlife #workinprogress #wip #art #drawing #colouredpencil #fabercastell #polychromos #carandache
