Rachael Speirs is an award-winning artist from Toronto. As a self-taught artist, Rachael looked to her childhood picture books and her grandmothers embroidery work for inspiration and to practice her skill. Rachael’s education and working career in social work is reflected in the humanitarian elements of her art. Her pieces are a humanistic visual metaphor steeped in narrative.
‘There is nothing to fear’ is a metaphor that connects the viewer to their childhood imagination. Like opening a picture book and not knowing the words. Its about how our perceptions and experiences of the world can shift between day and night.
