Rachel Meehan, a graduate from the Glasgow School of Art, will be launching her brand new 2017 card collection at the Scottish Exhibition & Conference Centre Retail Trade Fair in Glasgow which will take place on 17-18 September. ‘Rachel Meehan, pictures and words’ is a newly formed company specialising in high quality art cards and prints for special occasions.
Founded in early 2017, the company offers a wide range of images in card or print format, all inspired by nature. Her signature collections comprise ‘Bold Blooms’ - a range of intricate floral illustrations based on drawings of some of Rachel’s favourite flowers from her own garden, and ‘Fabulous Feathers’ – a series of exotic bird illustrations celebrating some of the wondrous colours found in nature.
Rachel, whose studio is based in the Scottish Borders comments, “After many months of preparation, I am excited to be launching my collection at the show this year. I originally trained as a printmaker which has greatly influenced my illustrative techniques and enabled me to create images which are a little unique in their style.
“I am very proud of my “Bold Blooms and Fabulous Feathers” collections. It has taken a lot of hard work and discipline to put together a strong selection, and I am looking forward to gauging the reaction from the retail trade.”
