Rachael Ashe is a graduate of the Creative Photography program at Humber College in Ontario, and is self-taught in paper-cutting and sculpting. She creates hand cut artwork and installation from paper inspired by visual patterns found in nature, and influenced by textile design and production.
Her work is an intersection of the disciplines of art, craft and design. Rachael credits her former position as a photographer at the Textile Museum of Canada, and an extensive exposure to handcrafted textiles, as a major influence on her work with paper to this day.
She has exhibited across Canada, the US, and the UK, as well as been published in Uppercase Magazine, and the books Design Genius, and Paper Play. Rachael lives and works in beautiful Vancouver BC.
